Jay and Gram Dancing

Jay Carty 1941-2017


On May 4th, shortly after noon, Jay Carty peacefully stepped into the presence of the Lord while wife, children and grandchildren sat by his side.

Jay had been diagnosed with myeloma cancer and more recently lymphoma. The family, seeking God’s direction, believing and contending for healing, also pursued the best of medical care.

Jay has lived these past years and recent months in peace that his future and eternity is entirely in the Lord’s hands. Today, our family believes that ultimate healing has been accomplished through the shed blood of our Savior, Lord Jesus Christ, who took hold of Jay’s hand and ushered him into eternity.

Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, my God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
your mighty acts to all who are to come.
Psalm 71:18
