This is Jay

It’s been extremely gratifying to hear from so many people about my Red Sox essay. Thanks to everyone who has left a comment or mailed in a kind word. I’m off for a vacation for the next few days (20th high school reunion), but I thought before I left I would post links to two other pieces that I wrote about Jay. That’s him on the left…

The first is an account of his birth: Meeting the Little Man. The second was written soon after his diagnosis: Something Happened.
