Condolence From: Marlin K. Sparks
Condolence: Jay & I met in the summer of 1957, Jay was 4 & I was 5, my family moved in next door to the McDowell’s on Sunset Dr. in Madisonville, Ky. We became friends, and did all of the usual things young boys did. Rode bikes, played in the creek, played baseball, football & cowboys. My family moved to another town in 1963 but, Jay and I kept up with each other. We attended each other’s wedding and we were groomsmen for one another. Still later when I moved my family to Danville, Ky. We managed to keep in touch with each other. Jay has stopped by when he was making his sales calls in my area and we managed to squeeze in a round of golf. There have been gaps thru the years but we eventually got in touch. My heart was broken when I received notice of Jay’s passing last evening! I was negligent these past months for not calling. I am truly sorry. Vicki and I have been praying for you Ellen and your family. These are difficult days for you but, you know that the Lord is with you and family, we also are aware from the scriptures : “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. We will be in prayer for you all. Old friends, Marlin & Vicki Sparks
