My sincere condolences are with you Cynth and your entire family, I know it's a great loss to the family. Jay was one of the CLASSIEST DIVA's I have ever met. Being young, fresh out of college with 2 babies, starting a new job at BTI, Jay kept me grounded and focused on the overall picture of balance of being a young Mom and working mom. I will cherish these memories of her and our long talks and laughter through it all. My heart goes out to the family. Sincerely Tonya Reply to this comment

Auntie Jay you will be missed. You taught me not to sweat the small stuff, you always managed to wear a smile, show love and strength. You left me with nothing but great memories. I love you Donut Reply to this comment

Words can never express the loss of such a good heart, words never seem to be enough for those who are grieving but those special and caring words are what help you through when you are remembering someone so dear. God gives us the gift of memories and the love of family, may you rest in eternal peace and may your legacy forever be honored. Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers. Love, cousin Lisa.

The time went by really fast. You spoke of your illness and had no problem answering questions and stayed strong through it all. Never a time I came to GA and didn't visit. I'm going to miss your honesty, smile and laugh. Glad you are no longer in pain but missing you always. Love your niece Tiff Reply to this comment
