Thanks to whoever posted this. Just heard about Jay today. Saddened to hear of the passing of another classmate. I remember Hay being particularly proud of his sports car, an Austin Healey Sprite as I recall. Mrs. Shuttleworth—our yearbook advisor—made sure a picture of it appeared in our ‘66 Sandpiper.
