Well I am sure going to miss my Uncle Jay, He had a big heart even if he dropped me on my head playing catch with me and his brother Robert. When ever he visited it was nice to listen to him and dad talk about CF and trucking. Learned a lot from him and dad but Uncle Jay had a way of making you understand a little better. I will greatly miss all the brothers and sisters Raymond and Edna had over time.

Sincere sympathy on the loss of Uncle Jay.  Such fun times we shared. Mom and Dad loved going on trips with your parents.  He really was a “good egg” and loved to joke around.  Many fond memories. Thoughts and prayers are with all my cousins and their families.  Linda and Tom Landis

What wonderful memories I have of your father when he worked at Rhoads & Smith.  Twice a week he was there and always had a smile on his face!  I loved talking with him as he worked.  Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
