I talked to Carol a few minutes ago (Saturday morning, 16 March). The hole in Jay’s stomach has healed completely, but he developed heart/respiratory problems. When he was discharged from the Gulfport Mississippi Memorial Hospital he was transferred to another medical facility in the Gulfport area. He has started eating on his own but has a long way to go in recovering.
Jay cannot currently receive telephone calls, but is able to receive correspondence. I solicit Jay’s shipmates to send him a get well card, with a few words of encouragement. Remember to keep Jay and Carol in your prayers. Send cards to:
