This is not Jay Simser. As many people know my uncle, Jay Simser, passed away back in January. If you are just now learning of this, then let me express my apologies and condolences.
I have just now figured out how to get access to his blog.
I wanted to post an announcement for his memorial service here. It will be this upcoming Sunday May 19th at 2pm at the Arcadia Lodge (107 Alexander Ave.) in Ames, Ia.
