Hi … this is the first time I read the blog … so many kind thoughts …. Thank you, it means a lot. I graduated from high school 30 years ago and to see so many familiar names from the past, wishing me and my family well was a lovely surprise. Brought me back to a time in the late 70's early 80's when it seemed so simple and ok. I guess that's why it's called home. Thanks NYC for the food, care and kind words. It's been a big help. And thanks to our friends in the Hudson Valley. The moment I got sick …. They made certain the fridge was full … the boys were cared for and the Christmas Season wasn't forgotten. Special love to Linda also. For me, it's a shadowy fog, and yet she's taken my hand and walked me through this. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.
Many Thanks,
Jay Andrew McTiernan


  1. How great to hear from you! Sorry you are going through all the insurance garbage. Went through something similar a few years back when I was real sick. Hope it gets all straightened out soon and you get back on track with your care. Take time to enjoy yourself and family over the holiday season. Wishing you all the best and continue to keep you, Linda & the boys in our prayers! Leisa Day Merrick

  2. Thinking of you all everyday! Sending love, optimism and screw-insurance-company solidarity your way. Merry Christmas, beautiful, strong Family McTiernan--xxooo

  5. Hi Jay,
    It has been a long time since we grew up on Montgomery and North Fourth Ave. Long time since Bart Shelly and West Hill School days! Remember when we were younger you were always really physically active and always running around everywhere, so it will be that strength that keeps you fighting this cancer. Concentrate on the positive thoughts and your wonderful wife and boys and you will lick this. We are praying for your full recovery.

    a friend from the past,
