"Jay's friends have always called him Jay bird and Ross calls him bird at times. When we were going through the process of finding Kathy a new home I sent the boys links to various sites. Jay called me one day and said he and his wife had noticed Edencrest was a Jaybird company and wondered if it was fate that Edencrest should be our choice. "

Ross and Jay were both impressed with the facility when we moved Kathy's furniture in over Easter weekend. She is now is with the Jaybird family.
