On Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Jay wrote this short letter and left it on his computer for someone to find. Entitled “To Everyone” the letter was written just after he moved into hospice care at sister’s place in Modesto.
Here’s what he said:
I think I will be going soon but only to the unseen. Keep talking to me. I’ll make myself known. I will give signs from the other side to prove I’m still here. Look for the signs and don’t pooh pooh them.
I just wanted to shine a spotlight on the animals to show their beauty & value. That has been my mission. Staff, keep up the good work and honor your role in this.
To my big family, blood related and not, I love you all and accept who you are. Enjoy life!
Its been great but the body is worn out.
Much love! Jay
