  1. Prayers for you Glenda and Valorie & Jeff. I have such crazy fond memories of all the time we spent as kids over at your house on Faculty Drive. You all are very dear to me and I’m so sorry for your loss.


  2. Clayton was a great man and I am honored to call him a friend FLY HIGH ANGEL AND PRAYERS FOR THE FAMILY 🙏🙏🙏

  3. What an impressive, perfect example of a family Patriarch. Everyone should strive to be as amazing as “Pa”. We will surely miss him forever. This is hard and all I keep saying is “He is an angel now. His pain is gone. He is with his parents. Its gonna be ok.

    My sincere condolences to you all. I have no other words. I guess I’m still baffled at how sudden he left us. But, he knew what he was doing and God needed him home now.

    I love this family and I’m here for them all.

    Rest in heaven, Other Dad. We will still have our little talks every chance we get. I miss you already
