My sympathies go out to all of Jay's friends and family. It is never easy to lose a loved one, but there are always happy memories. The memories will help you through this difficult time.

My deepest sympathies to all of Jay's family on his much-too-early passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Jay and all of you.
Jay became a dear friend when I married my husband Ernest Booker. I have never met a more generous or kind man. He and my husband had a great friendship and I was honored to also call him my friend. He will be missed more than he would have thought possible. We love you Denver and are glad that you are at peace and not hurting any longer.
“You either stop at a stop sign or you do not, there is no such thing as a rolling stop.” This was Denver and he used this thought process in every phase of his life. Nothing could be half right; it was or it wasn't. He was my friend for over 33 years and I will miss him and his companionship.
I worked with Jay for many years at Sequoyah. We were among some of the early folks in the Sequoyah Maintenance Departement when the plant was being finished and starting up. There is always a comradery when folks work through such an accomplishment. He was a hard worker and a team player. Most of all, he had a big heart and was always there to help others in time of need. I remember fondly our good natured ribbing about his love for Notre Dame football and my love for my Tennessee Volunteers. It was always fun to talk and joke with him. He will be missed!
I love you so much, Uncle Jay. I will miss you dearly, but am glad you are at peace.
