Jay, losing you is the most painful loss I have ever experienced. Everyday I cry and I long for the day that I will see you again. You were the best man I have ever met, the love of my life. You said that we were soulmates and I too believe that with all my heart. I am lost without you. I love you always and forever. J+S=R. May God take care of you. Shannon
