On behalf of the Capuchin brothers, I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Jay. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Jay's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Tahnoose family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Jay!
