  2. I never forgot Jay’s birthday. He turned 21 the day Faith and I married. He was our groomsman. When I think of cowboys, I think of Jay. I wish I had told him that in life.

  3. All Jay wanted to do was cowboy. We saw him many times moving cattle with just his dog, his horse and himself. That’s what he lived for. He will be missed by all who knew him.
