What a wonderful young man...will miss getting to know you better at Calvary. The short time of knowing you has been a blessing...rest in the arms of Jesus.

I firstly wanted to say that I’m sorry for your loss and that I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a son and brother...
It had been a while since Clint and I had spoken, probably since the Central Church days, but when I read his name and the tragic story all the memories of Camp Tsungani and us being bunk mates or acting up in Sunday School came to mind however one stood out in specific...

One day after church in about 5th grade, Clint and I went back to my house to hang out for a bit and ended playing call of duty. I remember being so upset at him because he kept beating me at my own game and ended up just counting down until he would leave and i could win again...
It’s hard to see people you know and even at one point we’re close with leave in a blink of an eye... it’s not something anyone, especially family can prepare for...
I’m sorry
