I knew Jay as a friend to be and Jim and as our Sunday School Superintendent at Town St Church of God. He was fun to be around as well as work with at church. Everyone who knew him enjoyed his humor and his company. One time a boy brought a snake to Sunday school which freaked out his teacher but Jay just laughed it off to his mother as boys being boys. Jay was good a good attorney and helped our church as well as helped Jim with legal matters through the years. Although we didn’t see much of him these pass several years we always knew he was there if we had a legal question. His friendship meant a lot to us. He will be missed. Debbie Criscillis and the late Jim Criscillis

Thank you for the kind words about dad. He was always proud to be part of the church. You were all his family too.
