To the family of Jay-We all send our condolences to the loss of Jay (Tommy, Annette, Dianne and myself). Really enjoyed all those trips around the square to "Creamland" and under the Trustle to the Square again! What a trip back in the 70's. Memories you just cannot forget about Jay. Did not get to see him much lately, but a good friend if you knew him.
