Our sincerest of condolences to Clayton's family, and especially Donna. My dad has lost a long-time friend with whom he shared many really great memories.

Clayton discovered some of Jennifer's artwork a few years ago, and they soon shared lots of telephone discussions. He was a very wonderful person to be around and talk with.

Clayton and Donna will always be in our memories.

Our love,
Jack, Stan, Bob, Jennifer and the rest of the Brindle family.

I will miss you Clayton.......you always made me laugh. You were there for me a few years ago when I was in a very bad place. I told you things I had never shared with anyone and you supported me. I will always remember you for that. You will always be in my heart.

Mr. Ferguson aka PawPaw Fuzz, was one of the sweetest, comical people I've ever met. I've always admired the way he brought up his family. Strong values, professional work ethic, and just everyone's buddy. My heart goes out to Donna, aka Granny Ferg, Glenda and my brother Randy Tupper. But also to Jeff and Lisa, Robert and Jayne. Greg, Emily, Matt, Amber, all of the grand children and great grandchildren.
May you each find solace in a life well lived and loved!
May you find comfort in warm memories of him as well.

Much love,

From the Family
