  2. Clay, we are so sorry for the loss of your mom! We have known each other for a long time and shared a lot over the years watching Chris and you become grown men and have families of your very own. Big hugs your way and hope that Bill and I can be with you on Thursday evening. I am signing our names as you have always addressed us with the respect your mom shared with you during those “growing” years.
