My Dearest Family,
I was devastated when I heard about Jay’s passing; I cried all day and think about him. The last time Jay and I connected on Messenger, we laughed and talked about life, and about our grandkids. Even though it was a long time since we spoke, it was like time had stood still and we were young again, laughing and hanging out with Uncle Kevin Santiago and being chased by the “little people” who were our younger siblings, Will Hernandez, Gina Santiago, Celine S. Hall and Lisa Santiago (recently departed.) Those were great times!
May you all find comfort in the memories of Jay’s Love for his family, his quick wit, and the laughter he brought to everyone. I am sharing in your sorrow and wishing I could be there to hold your hand.
We are thinking and praying for you Familia,
Cousin Diane and husband John Rodriguez
