    May Jay rest in peace. I am saddened for the Loberg family with the passing of Jay just after Tom. Sometimes it is hard to see the big picture with passing of a loved one and friend. I will be out of town during Jay’s funeral, never the less, my thoughts on Monday will be in Buffalo regarding Jay and his family. Wishing the Loberg family the best during such a sad time.

    So very, very sorry, Cheryl, to you and your boys. There’s so many fond memories from the ’60’s. The most vivid is Jay and I riding to the golf course on his Honda 50. Jay driving and I’m on the back carrying two sets of clubs (poor Honda). Take care, girl, and I’ll call when I get back to MN. Jeff
