Dear Saar Family:

I’m so sorry to hear that Jay has passed. I wish I could have been there today to see all of the family. I always loved spending time with you all. I miss Janet and have been going through pictures and cards and enjoying all of them and remembering our fun times. I’m sure she and mom n pop were there to greet him. I’ll pray for his wife and sons they will heal and can be okay.

Love to all,

John Saar Posted at 08:23am

Thank you so much MJ,

John & Maureen & family - So sorry to hear about the passing of Jay. He was just a kid when I moved out of Nutley, but I know John & Dan from the Nutley Volunteer Emergency & Rescue Squad (1976-1983) and have high regard for the family. I'm afraid I learned too late to pass my condolences in person, but God bless the family during this trying time.

John, Maureen and family, My heartfelt condolences on Jay's passing. I can only echo the sentiments already expressed on this page. My belief is that Jay is at peace, and that in time, he would want you to feel the same: He would want you to remember him not in sorrow, but in his smile, in a lifetime of happier memories, in the good way he touched the lives of his family, friends and co-workers. His spirit lives on.
