    God Bless this wonderful man. J and Gloria were like family to me when I worked for them at the Sidewalk Cafe for many years. I love them dearly and will never forget their kindness.

    My thoughts are with you Gloria, T.J. and Kathy. I will always remember the learning experience at the Sidewalk Cafe. You all treated me like family and I will never forget that. God Bless you all and your families.

    Gloria, Cathy, and family-
    My sincere condolences in the loss of Jay. I have many fond memories of his “wit and wisdom”. It was truly a pleasure to get to know him and his wonderful wife and daughter! I will miss you all. Melody

    Lost track of Jay and Gloria over past years but knowing Jay has left us still is a loss to me. Jay was a light through a lot of dark times for me . A truly Christian and loving soul who mended a lot of broken wings and helped us find a better path. He was a brother to me and I will never forget his kindness . He and Gloria were both on the short list of most decent and thoughtful dear people I know and God bless them and keep them .
