James (Jay), 1981-2007
Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
While walking toward a downtown ATM, on Monday at 1 AM (Aug. 6th), my 26 year old nephew was shot in the head by an unidentified assailant.
The family will have him taken off life support at 4pm Pacific Time today. A Memorial will be held this Friday at noon PST. Your thoughts & prayers are appreciated as Cathy and Chris and Jay’s girlfriend, Sarah, negotiate thru these troubled waters.
After serving a year in prison for some drug law violation, for the past year and a half Jay built a new life for himself, finding steady work and a steady love – Sarah. Nearly 200 people showed up for the candlelight vigil.
I last remember Jay as a sweet 14 year old boy. My brother told me that he became a sweet 26-year-old man, and asked me to tell my friends to hug their kids, today.
Postscript: These are the killers, all of whom were convicted. Two men and a woman went out that night “to kill someone.” They got the experience they wanted. They also got prison.
