Your memories of Jay

Weeping silver pear tree

A Weeping Silver Pear tree will be planted at Jay’s grave in the woodland burial area at Camberwell Old Cemetery, SE22 0SQ

As Jay’s friends and I looked for a way to reflect and remember Jay, we thought we could create a shared space where we could each contribute our memories of him. We thought this would shape a really beautiful story showing the richness of Jay’s life and the many different ways in which he connected with people. In this way our shared story would be richer and more layered – and we might all learn little more about the man we were proud to call our friend.

Please feel free to add to our story chest. Write about a particular moment or day, a regular thing you did together, or simply the moment you met him. A suggested guideline is around 200 words, but it can be as short as you like – or it could be a picture or bit of audio if you prefer.
