    Seeing Jay and Pat at the Red Zone for Saturday breakfast or at the Lady Raider games was a ray of sunshine.
    Being a target for Jay’s dry wit tickled me so! He will be missed.
    My condolences to Patti and Cal, who cheered with is at the basketball games.

    Aunt Pat,
    I am forever better having Uncle Jay in my life. He was always a man of God and a great support to you and the girls. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for you during the next few days as you prepare to say “see you later” and not “good-bye”. You are loved from GA!

    Jay was a special man and friend. The legacy he has left to you and your family, and the Shallowater Community will go on forever. The Blackburn’s send our prayers and love to you and your family. ?❤️?

  7. Jay was truly one of a kind. His love for the Lord was so evident, but his love for Pat was unsurpassed. If you needed prayer or council, Jay and Pat were a double blessing. It was always “Jay and Pat. “. It will be hard to break that habit. The two were truly “one. “

  8. Darrell Walker

    I admired Jay in every way. As a friend as a Christian, a role model and as a prayer warrior. His and Pats prayers for my family and me when things were really tough will never be forgotten. He could always be counted on and will be forever one that I hold close in my mind and heart. My prayers for Pat and family.

    Pat and Family, In the last couple of weeks, we have had four friends make their transfer from this Earth to their Heavenly home. And even though we can only imagine the celebration they’re having, it does leave an empty spot here on this Earth. Jay was one of those, along with Pat, that were on the Frontline for us. That was a comfort to know. I know that now he is still on a Frontline for us, even though it may be the great cloud of witnesses. We want you to know that we are praying for you all. And we love you all. The Grubelnik family

  10. Pat and Patty I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a nice gentle man of God. Your family was always a true example of God’s love. You are in my prayers.
