Flora, Johnny, Ellen, and Children,

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Jay.

Please know my thoughts, and prayers are with each of you as you go through your memories of love, laughter, and joy you shared with your son, husband, and Daddy.

I will always remember Jay as a nephew. The days he spent with Frank's children and the time we spent as family on the lake, at Christmas's, Halloween, and birthday's - especially with all our family's' November birthdays, starting with your Mother, Flora. We still celebrate the November Birthday's with an annual Oyster Roast at Glenn's House. We would love to see you there and celebrate Flora's day and honor Jay's.

My best of thoughts of Jay as a young nephew, a proud Cadet, a loving husband, and father. My prayers for each of you as you go forward in God's path and find the plans He has for you until you meet again in Heaven.

In Christ's Love,
