Aunt Jaye was my Godmother (my patine). She always made me feel so special. I remember being in her and Stans wedding as a teenager and always visiting her every time I went home to New Castle. I am glad I got to talk to get on the phone recently and I got to remind her that I loved her and always will. I am sorry and prayers to her family and friends. I am happy that she was apart of my life. RIP
