Very sorry to hear this Pat. Mary Ann and I have always considered you two very good friends and I shared email jokes with Jay up until the end. We wondered when we would be getting together again while having dinner at the Roadhouse just this past Friday. Our condolences to you and your family as we will all miss him. John and Mary Ann
