    I was sorry to learn of Clay’s passing. He was a lifelong friend of my late husband, Peter Wesley. During their adult years, they were part of a somewhat exclusive group that was fondly referred to as “The Boys Club”! They golfed together, travelled together, and told many stories together, often trying to outdo one another! No matter the outcome, they all laughed together! Sadly, there are now more of the “Boys” in Heaven, than those left here on earth. I have no doubt that Clay has already met up with Peter and a fond reunion has taken place. My sincere condolences to Clay’s family and many friends. He will be missed. ~ Kindest personal regards, Donna Hogeland
