Jay gave life of service to W.Va.

— — As I sit here reflecting back on my life, I remember very well of the 50 years Jay Rockefeller has been in West Virginia. Starting out as a Vista worker, onto the House of Delegates, secretary of state, governor and finally U.S. senator, Jay Rockefeller has always stood up for the working men and women, senior citizens, veterans and the youth of West Virginia.

Simply put, my fellow West Virginians, there will never be another man to replace Jay Rockefeller. As West Virginia celebrates her 150th birthday, we should all remember and appreciate Jay Rockefeller for his life of service to this great state and its people.

Thanks Jay for the great ride and the life that you helped me achieve along the way.
