  1. We are in shock to hear the news of Clay. Clay was a wonderful friend to our son Chase Bourque while growing up together from little boys to grown men. Chase is in the Navy and out to sea and probably will not hear about this for a month in the future. We know his heart will be crushed. Our prayers go out to the wonderful Elliott family during their time of extreme sorrow!

  8. I don’t know Clay but I have known him parents for years and others in the family. My prayers, love, and thoughts are with them all in this time. Losing a child leaves a hole in your heart and the loss of a sister or brother a empty space in you life . Remember the love and happiness Clay gave to you all.
