    Jay and I were friends since childhood. I have many fond memories from back then, and a few pictures. We used to call him Jaybird because “Rockin’ Robin” came out and said how all the Jaybirds sing! I’m not sure he liked it, but eventually warmed up to it! Jaybird, you’ll be missed by many. May your soul rest in peace.
