    Clay will forever be loved and missed. All who knew him will forever have a hole in their hearts. Our prayers are with my best friend Christine and Ronald who were the most loving parents Clay could have ever asked for, and to Lauren, his sister who was always there when he needed her. Our love and prayers to you all!
