Virginia and family, so very sorry about the passing of your husband/father and grandfather. Virginia, I worked with you years ago at G.E. and remember how we shared conversations about our husband and children. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God Bless.

We are very sad to hear about Clayton's passing, our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. His passing is a significant loss for so many, tell ya what - as he was the last of the Johnson brother and sisters, I would love to be a fly on the wall in Heaven for the homecoming they are having now. Be at peace Clayton, you made a difference here.
