Jay Rankin Death – Obituary : ”My heart is broken, this is the hardest post I’ve had to share. I love you so much Jay Rankin and will miss you even more. Thank you for all the amazing memories we made the last 34 years
I loved hanging out with you and being an annoying younger cousin, I loved reminding you how much of an old man you were , You always made the best drinks even though I pretended I didn’t like them, You were so smart and had the most useless knowledge of anyone I ever met (definitely would have won on jeopardy), your smile always light up the room and warmed my heart, no matter where we were I was always safe with you
I have always looked up to you and will continue to do so . It still doesn’t feel real…. Fly high cousin- until we meet again …” Jesse Cole
