I remember being welcomed in the Clay's home & learning to water ski during an outing with the clay family one summer many years ago. Such a wonderfull family & such a huge loss. My thoughts are with you. May your wonderfull memories of Mr. Clay help you through such a painfull time.

My thoughts are with all of the Clay family. I hated to hear that Mr. Clay had passed away. He will truly be missed by all that knew & loved him. Although it's been many years since I have seen him or Ms. Shirley. I still feel very blesed to have had the oppertunity to get to know them. He was truly a wonderfull man.

Troy and I were both so sorry to read of Leon's passing in todays paper. I don't know how many times Troy has said Leon and I need to go see Bill while we are all still here. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this sad time.

Leon will truly be missed by my family. He was one of the first people that we met when we moved to Joy. He welcomed us with open arms and became not only a neighbor but a friend to the entire family. Anyone that knew Leon Clay for any length of time is a better person, if they follow the example he set in the way he lived his life. He had a kind, caring, and compassionate soul that will be missed but remembered forever.

Shirley, We will miss Leon so, very much. I always wanted to have that "yard sit time." I am sad that we didn't make it happen. He was always so good to let us know things. We hurt for you so much. We sent our condolences to you, Michael and Ronnie. We are so sorry for your loss. It is a great one.
Fondly, Jill and Tom
