I remember Jay visiting my parents, his Uncle Earl and Aunt Myrtle and us kids when he was 14. He always had a big smile on his face and helped mom aroundthe house. I bet Dad took him fishing in the river behind our house. The next memory I had of him was when He and Hazel got married. They were in the car next to each otherjust beaming they were so happy. They let me get married at their farm in 1992. That was at our family reunion. I have always loved both of them as we kept in touch via facebookor at funerals. God bless the family. Love,
