I can not find the right or wrong words. I lost my drinking buddy, my friend, the best brother a girl could of had. I will miss and treasure every moment we shared. I love you more then words care say.

God said to Love Thy Neighbor and that is exactly what Jay constantly did and in big ways! He helped me countless times over the years fixing my lawn mower, weed eater, leaf blower, car, etc. Many times after a huge limb fall in my yard from a storm Jay would be right over with his chain saw already cutting it up for me. I never had to ask. He would just come over in the yard and help. Jay did nice and loving deeds for tons of other neighbors as well. He was brilliant in fixing and repairing practically anything. In addition, Jay was the heart and soul of our neighborhood! Everyone knew him! He was hard working, funny, and incredibly kind! He treated my daughter as his own and watched her grow up! There is NO better example than Jay of how to love another human being! Thinking about him makes me a better person. RIP in "Brother Man!" You have 100% positively affected my life! You are the true definition of how to love thy neighbor! Thank you for blessing us for your amazing non stop acts of kindness and love! We are all grateful for knowing you!
