Interment will be at the convenience of the family.


Dear Claudia, I am so very sorry that you and Clay are separated by this veil we call death. I know you are trusting God for him, but I know missing your partner for all those years will be hard. I always thought I would see both of you again while still her on this earth, but I will have to wait for that day whan Jesus finally sets everything right to see Clay again. I hope to see you sooner, however. I have been missing you both, and wondering about you. The wonderful heritage Clay and his family shared with me will always be treasured, and I will be praying for you. Brenda Telegraphis
