Oh Uncle Jay. I'm so sad to hear about your passing. I have 2 very special memories with you that I think about. A conversation on grandma and grandpas front porch just before grandma passed away, and having breakfast with you here in Boise when you came through. Both visits had a special moment for me that I will never forget. I love you. Rest in peace Uncle Jay.

My heart is breaking right now Uncle Jay.  No one in my family knew of your passing until this morning.  I just know that I was so excited that we got to share our knowledge with each other about our family roots.  I love you dearly and will miss you deeply.  My heart is breaking.  RIP Uncle Jay.

Your passing has sadden me,you were the best brother in law.You will be in our Hearts forever as you always have been.Rest in peace my kind sweet Brother.

As usual, following the "Lewis" tradition (Mom's side of the family), I'm late to offer my sympathy here, though I have talked to Karen a few times.  I was distressed to hear the news when my brother's health took a turn for the worse. I did my crying then because  we expected the inevitable. So his "home-going" is really a blessing, after his health issues, though I know he would have liked to stay around longer...especially with Karen spoiling him. He was blessed to find two wonderful women with which to share his life.
I have many fond memories of my older brother from my childhood. We three younger kids always looked up to him so much, but because there were so many years between us, there was so much I didn't know about him. I'm glad we took the time to drive to Oregon a couple winters ago and see him after so many years.
Our prayers are with Karen, Jeff, and Jay's "second family" ... he was blessed to have you all in his life.  Our love, Jim and Marceil "Sissy" (Tibbetts) Skifter
