    Jay was a blessing to our family for over 33 years. He was always a pleasure to be around as well as fun to be around. There was never a negitive word from him or about him; love by all. Trellis, I, and our children will forever miss him. May God rest his soul and put peace in his family and friends hearts. William R.& Trellis A. Campbell

    Our hearts go out to Jays family. John 5:28&29 is one of our favorite scriptures as we both have lost close family members and friends and cannot wait to be reunited with them in Jehovah’s paradise right here on the earth
