    I am one of Jay’s older brothers. We talked often on the phone. When Jay was trying to decide whether to leave Baltimore or not I told him I thought it would be good for him to go back into the country. He loved the outdoors like fishing and stuff. I’m really gonna miss my little brother but will always have some fun memories. Rest in Peace knuckle head. I Love you.
