I think of Jay often. We would fight and argue at school but after a few days everything always seamed alright again. I remember playing Jr. High football together and I remember his quick wit and laughter. I remember a lot of good things about Jay we were not the best of friends but friends. I also remember the morning that I received the devastating news of his passing. Years later while at school at JSU I went thru some hard times and I often would find myself taking a ride to where jay lost his life, and after taking a few minuets to talk with and remember jay things always seemed to get better. While I was deployed to Iraq I found myself again asking jay to watch over me. Through the years I have found that jay is still as much a part of my life as he was when we were in school. Ms. Sunan believe me when I say Jay is still living on thru his classmates and our memories. Its hard to believe its been 19 yrs. LHS class of 1997 will soon be 20yrs gone.

Today my reminder popped up on my computer screen letting me know today was the day my nephew Jay left us for a better place, but he left us just as his life was getting started, he is missed by all who knew him. There are times life just does not seem right when those we know and love are no longer with us. As hard as it is to believe, Jay has been gone 19 years and it still seems just like yesterday he was planning to come visit Ann and Me before he left for the U.S. Marines. Jay will never be forgotten as long as we remember him, talk about him, and write about him.

February 22, 2016, It is so hard to believe Jay who would be thirty-seven now has been gone from us for nineteen years, how is that possible? I was not in Jay's life for long but he was a good young man and had a bright future in front of him, sadly his life ended on a dark road in a senseless traffic accident. Jay, you are missed, loved, and still appreciated by your family and friends. Bob Busby

It is difficult to comprehend that you have been out of my reach for eighteen years....You have never been out of my heart and Never will. I still see your loving eyes looking down at me with that boyish smile of adoration...I love you and always will. Mom

Jay is still remembered in our hearts and minds even though he has been gone 18 years and would have been 36 today. Hard to believe he is gone or that he has been gone so long. Remembering the good times Jay. Remembering the family

Jay is still remembered in our hearts and minds even though he has been gone 17 years and would have been 35. Hard to believe he is gone or that he has been gone so long. Remembering the good times Jay.

It seems just like yesterday Jay and Ann were talking about his plans to go into the Marines after coming to visit us in Virginia. Life can be great and life can take a turn for the worse. Jay was taken way too soon from family and friends, but am sure Jay is doing what he does best, making other folks happy in heaven.

16 years is a long time for Jay to have been gone, he would have been half way through his time with the Marines by now, we just never know what fate has in store for us or when we will be called to leave this world. Jay was a fine young man and is remembered for all he did for his family and friends RIP Jay.

Happy Birthday my beloved Son. I took flowers and a small Happy Birthday token for you today. I can't believe that you would have been 34 years old today. I miss you more than you can fathom. Love always, until I can feel your loving embrace again---Mom.

Ann and I still remember Jay, he is not gone and still holds a special place in our hearts and minds

Still remember all the good times with Jay at Jacksonville, Anniston, and the River way back when in Alabama, still hard to believe Jay is gone and that so much time has passed since he left us. Just prior to his passing Ann and I were planing for Jay to come visit us in Northern Virginia...Life is not easy all the time

Jay was a good kid and would have been a great man, so sorry he had to leave us so soon.
