I was having trouble finding the words to say for this page, so I thought I would use the words said by Coach Jay's kids today:
Well, today was the worst birthday of my life. Today, we lost one of the greatest man on this earth, the best dad anyone could ask for. He taught me to be the man I am today, he taught me to treat others with respect, he raised me right, and he was my best friend. I can't believe you aren't gonna be able to see your grandchildren, and I can't believe you aren't gonna see me grow up to be the man that you raised me to be. You will be missed by many. I love you so much. I'm happy the last 3 words I ever said to you in person were, I love you because you preached love. You raised me to be a loving man and that's who I am. I love you dad!! From your man 50 grand ❤️ RIP 12-22-74 to 6-7-17
What is there to really say, when you go through a loss like this? I guess I got my own angel now. I never thought i'd have to live a day without you seeing my kids, and walking me down the aisle, but here we are. You thought you were so invincible. Thank you for being my hero, daily. I love you, Daddy. Thank you for making me the strong, independent, woman I am today. Thank you for loving me, teaching me, and raising me. I hope I continue to make you proud. I hope you watch down on me. Let me know if there's a heaven, like you promised. I love you forever and always. Rest easy.
Thank you again for your generosity.
