Dear Shapiro Family, Our deepest sympathy on Jay's passing. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

I extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of Jay. Within a two week period two of my classmates passed over and both were friends that I have very fond memories of. Jay loved life and loved owning his own restaurant, Mama Shapiro's. If anyone knew how to have fun it was Jay . He lost his wife recently and now they can be joined together in everlasting peace. I extend sympathy to his family during this time of sorrow.
