Dear Carleen and the rest of the family and friends,
Jay will live eternally through all the lives he touched in his short period of existence. He and Carleen met with us at their home in Bostic for a day when we were visiting Hallelujah Acres to learn about health. They hosted a Christ-Life meeting with Warren and Robbie Litzman at their home in I think it was Clinton, that we attended.
During the last part of our visit with Jay and Carleen, Jay expressed to us that the core of our Christian faith and walk with God is helped through small personal home church meetings where growth abounds.
Jay and Carleen love God and again we say "Jay lives on in each of us."

Take care Carleen and the rest of the family,
Art & Cindy
