Our condolences on the passing of Clay. We met and worked closely in Brasilia in 1977, raising children, breaking bread and enjoying life in a far off land. Not uncommon in our business, our paths did not cross again, but Clay, Brenda and family remain warmly burned in our hearts. Ed & Bonnie Rohrbach
