Not sure what to say?

Dear Marcy, Amy, Julie, and Peter,
I am just feeling terrible that I have not written you all. I wrote cards but haven't found what I am certain are correct addresses for everyone. So, I apologize for this method of reaching you. Judith (my grandma) would have been embarrassed. It is a sign of the times.

Lois and I are both so saddened by the news. Jay was always the one we went to in time of legal problems. He was the best. His common sense and legal ability were second to none. I will always remember when we moved to Alaska, he couldn't wait to get Bobs "knee action" bike. A wonderful man!

Mrs. Brett, Peter, Julie and Amy,
I am very sorry to hear about your Dad. He was such a great guy who always had a smile on his face every time I saw him. Whether it was talking about the swimming pool, politics or the law, he was a great conversationalist. I miss the many great times on Amherstdale and Colonial. You have my sincere condolences.

Jay volunteered countless hours for Cornell and he was an outstanding leader in the Buffalo area. He made a positive impact not just on Cornell, but on the lives of thousands of young men and women.

Marcy - I was so sorry to hear about Jay. I'm sure that you and your family are being prayed for by a whole lot more people than any of you realize. Love,

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Jay's death. Somehow I always felt comfortable knowing he was around. Jay was a wonderful friend and knowing him has very much enriched my life. Sad to say, I did not spend enough time with him.

Marcy, I send my heartfelt condolences to you and the family. I share in your loss, with Love,
