Tonight I witnessed a beautiful celebration of Jay's life amongst his family and friends. It's hard to believe ten years have passed. Tears fell this evening as special guests offered great enlightenment into the mystery of life and the motifs behind Jay's imperishable compassion for others. He is missed but he is forever remembered; his songs remain the same.

I listen to our old recordings all of the time. Jay was a fantastic musician.

Here's Jay's youngest nephew, Dov Jacob Weintraub. He's 1-1/2 years old now and very fun loving. Deena is a great mom, as her husband Mitch and three year old son Max would eagerly agree.
The family is sponsoring a special dinner in memory of the tenth anniversary of Jay's passing. It will be an evening where, like his lyrics, "Slender threads of insight are somehow connected to truth." Please call if you want more information so you can attend. Love, Jay's Mom, Roberta, 386-672-9799

Roberta and family,

I just realized it's Passover. I am a friend of Jay's and spent Passover with your family and Irit years ago. I will always remember it as one of the most beautiful experiences. I still think about Jay often and my mom, who only met him one day for a few hours at Universal Studios, still does too. She instantly saw what a wonderful person he was. His spirit was simultaneously so innocent and wise, and his life was a beautiful expression of faith and peace. I learned a lot from his example. He and your family will always be in my thoughts and memories. Peace to you all, Valerie

Yesterday Jay would have been 30 years old. Our new reality without Jay in this physical world is still unfolding. Ashlee and her beautiful children visited so I could give her the present for HER thirtieth, but she was all about Jay. Tears for the children he never had, the awful twist of fate that led to his death despite how clean, healthy, strong and bright he was. Ashlee cried all our tears.
Gabe and Deena also had so much to say about their beloved brother. We all know that Jay's soul needs us to be happy or he will suffer in the World of Truth. Let's keep sending love and light. Blessings to all. Amen

The beautiful way you give his blessed memory honor is inspirational. As was his music. Sending much love your way.

Jay, thank you for showing me the futility of "bucket lists" and attempts at filling them when we finally accept that life is short or we find out we don't have much time left, for one reason or another. You didn't need a bucket had a full bucket every day because you kept it full with your enthusiasm, adventerous spirit, zest for enjoying and experiencing every minute of life, all while being a ray of sunshine to Jim, Roberta, Gabe, and Deena and all of us who had the unique and blessed privilege of knowing and loving you. Feel our love until we see you again. Keith and Ginger

Jeremy and Brian, thanks for your soulful messages in Jay's guest book. You give his family light and joy as you reflect on his essence. You are doing just what Jay would want by keeping the music alive.
We still have all the equipment Jay was using to record, so if you have ideas for what we should do with these items, please advise us, even to say after all these years, the technology might be obsolete. We welcome you any time so please visit! Roberta Sappington, 386-672-9799
