After many years of not seeing my old friend, I was so broken hearted to hear of his young passing. I remember many wonderful memories, good times, hunting with Jay, racing with Jay, making puzzle boxes with Jay. I always had fond and fun memories of him, and I am very sorry for your family's loss. I pray for you all, and won't forget Jay.

I am a former teacher of Justin's when he was a student in Port Ewen.
I just read the obituary for Walter.  I am so very sorry to hear about your brother.  
Please know that I will be thinking of you and your family during this time of such sorrow.
Please be as well as possible and may all the memories of your brother help you get through this difficult time.

Walt, Justin & Jodi,
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.
