It was such a joy to have Clay in the early part of my life. He was always friendly and so much fun to be around. Was surprised to see that he had married Nancy Trumpeter. His mother baked the best peanut butter cookies in the world and their door was always open to all. You take care now and relive the treasures in your heart. Jack Reynolds Midlothian, Va.

What a surprise! Clay was a good friend as a young man. From his oby. he was quite a sucessful man, which is no surprise to me. His mother baked the best peanut butter cookies ever. The big surprise was his marriage to Nancy Trumpeter. I remember you both so well and you added much joy to my life. Take care now. Jack Reynolds, Midlothian, Va.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I can't believe that I had the fortunate opportunity to see him by chance a few months ago at John Brewer's mother's viewing. It was great to remember the times past with the drum corp and my Father! Your entire family are in my prayers. Sincerely..... LuAnn

Nancy, I just learned of Clay's passing and am so sorry for your loss. You and Clay have always been so gracious to my mom, as well as to Jake and I. I know that you'll find comfort in the assurance of seeing him again and knowing that he's with Jesus, rejoicing and in perfect peace. You're a really special person to me (even with only the few times we've actually chatted)- you've always been an inspiration to me as you show Christian love and support to others. May you receive those same things now in your time of loss and into the future. If I can help in any way at all, please call. (724) 513-1593 Praying for you and your family, Shelly (Jane Blistan Hunt's daughter)
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

My thoughts are with you Nancy, Binkie, Bonnie. My sisters Vicki and Wendy also send you best wishes. We know how hard it is to deal with a family member passing within a short period of time but time heals. Clay was a good role model and will be remembered as such.
