I didn’t have the opportunity to meet jay, I met him online through a few games. In the months I knew jay, he was the kindest young lad I’ve ever met. Always had amazing conversations and made me laugh. We always used to talk about having a holiday with all our friends. We’ll be sure to raise a glass to you jay. Rest in peace buddy.

We are so very sad to lose Jayland. He and Jackson were just meant to be friends.. it was so natural for them. Our sweet boys met by chance and I'm thankful that they did. We pray for you all to have peace during this difficult time.
