Jean, I was shocked when I read of Clayton's death this morning. I recently have been thinking of both of you and planned to find a phone number to call. Then life interrupted as it invariably does. I love you both. Some of my happiest memories were when we were singing together. Such sweet times. Now Clayton can sing with the heavenly choir, O for a thousand tongues to sing Praises to His name. O for a thousand hands to raise in honor to the King! I will be praying for you and your family. God bless you. Psalms 147:3-5

I am sincerely sorry for the loss of Mr. Warner. A fine man who will long be remember by many. No mere words will take away his family's sadness; so, I will hope that the countless fine memories of him will be of comfort and help them get through this difficult time. Isaiah 26:19, Psalms 37:29
