"Peggy, Amanda, Megan Oh so very sorry for your loss. Judy and I are beside ourselves, just cannot fathom this. Jay was like a brother to me, and just like my brothers we fell away from each other. We had awesome times together, raising our kids, going camping, fishing, barbecueing in the garage and drinking RED DOG beer!! Omg so many years ago. Jay was an awesome father, husband and friend. He will be missed. Just remember he will always be with you in your hearts. God bless you all. Love, Bob and Judy"
