    Those we lost in 2014

    James "Jay" Lamar Patterson II

    Jay was the most thoughtful, caring, and courageous person I have ever known. He was not only my brother, but an amazing son, brother-in-law, and friend. He did not realize how many lives he touched in his short 19 years. The memories of him stopping the car in the middle of an intersection to give a homeless man $40, giving his basketball shoes to someone who could not afford them, taking the girl to the dance who no one would go with.. these are just a few memories that depict the person my brother was, and why I believe God needed him in heaven. We will never forget his handsome smile, his crazy conspiracy theories, and his caring heart. We miss you so much Jay and we hope you now have the clarity to see how much everyone truly cared and loved you.
