Bobby, Margie, Linda, I'm so sorry to learn of Clayton's passing. I just saw the obituary today or I would have come by to pay my respects. I and my family always thought a lot of Clayton and George and all of you and your family. I still tell people stories of how far Clayton could hit a baseball when we use to play down on the Central Baptist Church Parking Lot. I still miss George to this day as one of my best and long time friend. So again please know that you are all in my prayers and forgive me for missing the services for Clayton. Larry Adams
