    Brenda, I found out too late. I was glad to see this way to send my condolences. I have no idea what your address is. I’m truly sorry for your loss. Jay was much too young. I couldn’t believe it. I’m sure you are so distraught and heartbroken. I hope, in time you will feel less pain. Time is the only healer. Trust me, it will get easier to bear. I hope to run into you soon, where I can give you my sympathy in person. Hang in there Brenda.
    Love, Kathy
