"Man Jay, it seems like we were JUST YESTERDAY both cracking up together, making the best out of our past situations. Talking about fatherhood and work and the pits of US Steel, lol. You’ll always be remembered by me for being a good hearted, super intelligent, hardworking, loving husband and father. I learned a ton from you man. Hold it down, I’ll see you when I get there my guy…. "
