Connie and family, We were so sorry to hear about Clayton. Herb had surgery on the 31st of October (is still in the hospital with complication after complication) and so wanted to attend Clayton's service. He sends his prayers and sincere sympathy. He thought so much of Clayton. We both do.
Take care, Herb & Valorie
