Thoughts and prayers to the Beach family. Lots of fun times with Jay and family. Houston 1982, Jay thought we should go to a Rockets game because Gramma was a NBA fan, parking ramp with a really low ceiling, Jay was sure if we went fast we would be fine, we were, but not sure if his logic was correct. So very sorry for your loss. RACE ON JAY.

Dear Bonnie, Brian, Chuck and Andrea,
I am so sorry to hear about Jay,'s passing. My memories of Jay go way back to our youth. It didn't matter who you were or where you came from, Jay was kind to everyone. He loved to kid around. He laughed a lot and always had a GREAT smile. Jay formed a close bond with my daughter Erin right from the start. He always made her feel special and very loved by him. That meant the world to her! She will carry those wonderful memories she shared with Jay forever in her heart! I am so grateful for that. Most of all I remember Jay's kind heart and his ENORMOUS love for his mother! My heart goes out to you! Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this time of tremendous sorrow. My love to you!

Jay had a wonderful and caring spirit. He was a generous man always willing to help others - anytime, anyplace. He loved his mother dearly and cherished time with family. He was a fun, loving uncle to my daughter, Breanna. I am grateful that she has those fond memories. Jay had the gift of "compassion for others" and you knew it from the first time you met him. I will always remember his "grin". It makes me smile to this day. So sorry for your loss Bonnie, Brian, and Andrea. Cling to God's word about heaven and that you will see him again one day. Meanwhile, I'm sure he is surrounded by Marty and Gramma Beach's loving embrace - forever.
