Condolences

As always, I am late. Jay was one of my closest cousin growing up and we just grew apart as we got older. I am SO glad we got back connected these past few years. Many great memories of spending the night at Aunt Boot and Uncle Punk's house in "Hootervile" (as he called it) by the tracks. My prayers for comfort are with y'all!!!
