Carol, I am so sorry! I know that I could never imagine your sorrow, it’s simply something a mother should never go through, but you have proven through time how strong you are. Please allow me to be part of that strength, call on me and I’ll be there

I was sorry to hear of Jay's death. I got to hear him tell his story at a PWV Vocations Committee meeting and it was a delightful time as he expressed his joy at doing ministry and his calling to do it there in Logan! May all who loved him be comforted and blessed!
