Jay Parker’s funeral costs.

Jay unexpectedly passed away this morning at 4am. On Feb 5th we noticed he was turning yellow. We all went to breakfast on the 6th and he was very yellow. On the 7th he went to work and worked his 12 hour shift at his job that he loved so much. On the 8th he went to the hospital. He was diagnosed with liver failure. His liver transplant had failed a few weeks longer than 9 years.

Around 930 on the 19th, Jay got to come home to live out his life. It’s exactly where he wanted to be. Many friends and family were able to say their good-byes. And at 4am he passed away surrounded by his parents and siblings.
