Jay was 20 years my senior, acted 20 years my junior and kept a pilot light going at all times. He could turn up the heat to boost your spirits, fan the fire about something in the news that was really stupid and had that great capacity to keep everything positive along the way. “Happy Day,” so said Jay.

When it came to Christmas he would say, “If you believe, you will receive!”

And when it came to leaving phone messages, it usually had to do with truancy, lethargy or some socially deviant behavior — all expressed in some more colorful words.
