Clayton was one special guy to all of us in his army family. He was with us every step of the way while Megan was growing up. We could never have found a better surrogate grandfather. From the days of crawling in the motel hall with her, coming to Wv to see her play and remembering graduation and wedding, he and Liz were always there. Special people, special memories.
