A Sad Day

I had dinner with Jay back in mid July.  You might remember this photo I posted from that trip.


This would be the last time I would see Jay.

He passed away early this morning I've been told.
My heart is just breaking.

We have lost a gem....... a truly good man who gave more than his share to this world and those in it.
I just don't know what to say beyond that.

You WERE loved while you were here Jay, please know that.

Rest in peace my friend...........

Sluggy

  5. I thought his last blog post sounded weird. Jay committed suicide and had the time to write his last post telling us all 'goodbye'

    How very sad that something could have driven this man to such an extreme end.
    I hope you have found the serenity you needed, Jay.
    Rest in Peace.

  13. I got the news this morning; I am sorrowful as well. It seems senseless but I don't have all the facts; only the sadness of his death.

  18. Hello Sluggy, I found out something was wrong last Sunday, I got a phone call last Sunday afternoon from Ur Spo. He said Jay had a couple of disturbing blog posts. I called Jay later on and ask him what was up. He told me in a few days it wouldn't matter. At that time I didn't know what he meant. Jay went on to say that some body, he wouldn't say who "J' accused" him of having child porn. I guess he felt he could not go on and that suicide was the only way out. A "Bro" as he puts it let every one know. It happened this past (9-02-2015) Wednesday morning. I don't know how, where, or who found him. I feel so sad for his family and friends. :-(
