    I lived beside your mom for 40 years before she passed in January. U were young when we moved there. I watched u grow up though the good times and bad times. You grew up to be the most caring and good friend to us. U always wanted to help in anyway u could. You enjoyed life and especially your family. They were your life. It has been so hard that I don’t hear your car coming down our rd. We would always say THERE COMES CLAY . It hurts very deeply .My daughter passed away Thanksgiving she grew up with you. I feel I have lost a daughter and a son. You will so missed but no more pain. RIP
