  1. Clay, I will never forget your words of encouragement -especially with regards to Angie and my choices of praise and worship music. Your faith was so strong and it warms my heart to know you are in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My condolences to Barbara and the entire family-in the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen
