What of my old bestest friends is not doing well and needs our prayers. Jay stood up for me in a wedding, anyone who rented a tux for me is pretty special, even if the outcome wasn't so hot.

Jay Wagner had a bone marrow transplant back around Christmastime. He's been having a phenomenal recovery until a couple days ago, I don't know what happened.

I DO know that he is in the ICU, he is completely sedated and full of tubes, wires and who knows what-all. I need for you to pray and help him pull through! His wife and family need him and I need any friend who puts up with me!

Thanks in advance for your prayers!

KG your friend will definitely be in my prayers. Don't give up hope. Our cousins DH had a bone marrow transplant over a month ago, he was coughing/fever passed out and ended up on life support. It has been a long recovery but he is finally starting to show improvements, the drs gave her no hope for recovery.

Praying for Jay and his family. I ask the Lord to lay his healing hands on him and restore him to good health.

Thank you all - Jay is still in ICU and still on the ventilator. And now, as if all that wasn't bad enough, he's on dialysis, too. No one is sure what the prognosis is.

From Jay's family just a few minutes ago:

Mar 28, 2013 3:22 PM

Jay passed away today at 11:30 a.m. He was peaceful and surrounded by family and friends. Jay is already missed and will always be in our lives.

I will post funeral arrangements after I meet with the funeral home tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you all for your warm thoughts and prayers. My friendship with Jay goes back more years than I care to think about. We lost track of one another for reasons we really don't need to go into here, but last fall, we were able to pick up right where we left off. I was just getting to really enjoy our renewal when this happened.

We bury him next Friday, April 5. It will be a sad day, no doubt.

I'm so sorry KG. Losing a friend is like losing a part of yourself. May you be surrounded by Jesus' love, feel His peace, and be comforted in the assurance that Jay is no longer sick or suffering. Peace to you.

So sorry for your loss and his family's loss. Having lost parents, relatives, friends, etc. the following is something I've found comfort in; hopefully you will too.

An Irish Funeral Prayer

Death is nothing at all.
 It does not count.
 I have only slipped away into the next room.
 Everything remains as it was.
 The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
 Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
 Call me by the old familiar name.
 Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
 Put no sorrow in your tone. 
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
 Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. 
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
 Let it be spoken without effort
. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
 There is unbroken continuity.
 Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? 
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
 All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
 One brief moment and all will be as it was before. 
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
