  3. Hey everyone dear to Jay,

    the following nights after Jay’s death I sat with a candle, feeling him closeby and sensing all the connections which I cannot possibly hoist with words. A song came from these moments, its signature came on the guitar and now I have this song which is called ‘Jefferson’ – it is my wish to play this song with all our friends singing in chorus in a suitable spot of Purbeck. When this will be it is unclear yet I put it into motion. Just as Jay’s music taste was not confined to folk songs but to an infinitely novel spectrum of music it, our friend Jack has made an electronic twin to the song which we wish to play in his memory. This is just one facet of what will come but I wish to document it now.

    Thank you Jefferson,

    I bid you to enjoy this moment of novelty as you survey the astral lands on who-knows-what-cosmic quest – I wish it the best in your name as you were so dear a friend.

    Love Bill xxxxx

  4. Beth and I were very sad to hear of Jay’s death. We are thinking of you all and send you our love and sympathy.

    Last year, I sowed some acorns in pots and several have now grown tall enough to plant in the countryside. When I do so, I will dedicate one of these oak tree saplings to Jay.

  5. Our garden is full of plants which have been planted to commemorate people and dogs we have loved.
    For Jay we will add a Passion flower below the kitchen window which we will see. It will be a reminder of Jay.

  6. My absolute condolences are with you. I so wish I’d got to know Jay more as every meeting I had with him was positive and impactful. I will be planting some sunflowers (here in Australia) as those are definitely what I associate with him most.

    Go well

  7. My love and thought’s are with you all during this time… It was only a couple of months ago that we sat together around a fire, after a day spent getting sunburnt by the sea with friends, chatting excitedly about woodworking projects… I’m very grateful to have spent this time together before he left.
    He also came to visit me in a dream recently, it was so vivid, he looked very healthy and happy.

    Wishing you the best on your next adventure my brother, I hope our paths may cross again someday.

    Blessings,
