Driving through the neighborhood, I intentionally pass your home as if this maybe the day I see you and tell you how deeply sorry I am for the loss the most precious thing in your world, your son Jay. I regret not reaching out sooner and offering words of comfort, for I knew not what to say or write.
We are neighbors. I have two daughters ages 3 & 9. We stood at the street and watched as the funeral

Jay was a great friend to me. He helped me through some really tough times and was always there for me if i needed to be cheered up. He was always one to make me laugh. I think he would've been really happy to see how he made Lockport come together and be reminded that every day could be your last day and that you need to live it how you want to and tell everyone how much you love and appreciate all of them. I'm truly thankful to have known him and blessed to have him watching over me.

Jay was a one of a kind kid. He helped me through a tough time my freshman year. I never got a chance to thank him..
I can't imagine the pain that you (family) feel.
Jay will always be in my heart, as everyone elses.
Rest In Paradise, Jay. Love you buddy <3>

"When the clouds part and a ray of sun shines through,
We look to the sky; and think of you.
You see our tears and feel our ache,
We breathe you in with each breath we take.
There is no need to miss, what is not gone,
For you are right here, where you belong.
You are the suns warmth on our face,
Guiding us through this dark place.
You are the whisper of the wind through the night,
That gentle sparkle in a stars light.
You are the colours

Jay was one of a kind, his heart bigger than he was. Always the comedian, but never mean spirited. Generous and caring to all. We were blessed to know and love you. Heaven is rocking since you've arrived.
Love you always, The Gay family

To The Vana Family,
I sit and wonder why? And only god knows why he takes the young and the good... He must have a special mission for Jay now to watch over all of us and to be our ANGEL..
My heart goes out to all of you at this time.. Only time and great momories of Jay will help you cope. If there anything we can do , please were just a call away.
Love you all,
The Dalton Family
