Uncle Jay will be greatly missed. He was a walking testimony to all who knew him. A living example of how the lord can change someone's heart and life. Sing with the angels J.H. you've earned your wings. Love you forever

My family simply adored this man. He always had a smile, kind word, and warm hug for everyone. He was the perfect example of what we should be as God's children. Forever he will bring a smile to my face when I think about him. Until we meet again my friend. Hugs.

Uncle Jay was a special man in so many ways. I never knew of him having anything bad to say about anyone. He made you smile when he walked into a room, could make you laughlike no other, but most of all, his love for his family made you feel like you truly belonged to him. Uncle Jay will be missed dearly by so many, but when the day comes we will get to see him again to smile, laugh, sing, and love that man forever. I love you Uncle Jay

Jay Sr. was always smiling and made us feel like family. We will miss him. Looking forward to seeing him in Heaven, and hearing, "Hey, pretty lady," one more time and getting a big bear hug. Until then we pray for God's comfort and peace to carry you through.
