    I have been friends with Tony and Michelle now for around 30 years. I knew Jay through Tony. To say they are good people would be a serious understatement. Tony, I can't even express how sorry I am for your loss. My faith tells me that Jay is with our Lord. May God be with you and your family through this very difficult time.
