Jerry, my special razorback friend. You were one of a kind and will truly be missed. I'll miss our discussions about Razorback sports especially football. Rest easy my friend and I hope every hand you're dealt up there gives you nut nut. Love you my friend.

I'm so sorry to hear about Jerry's passing. He will be surely missed. Just hold onto those precious "Gold Nuggets" that God gave you throughout his lifetime. They will get you through these hard times and for the rest of your life. With Love, Robin & Brenda

Jerry was a great brother-in-law to me. He quickly welcomed me into the Clay family way back in the late 80's. He loved his Razorbacks, poker games, and his family! He will be missed.

RIP, Jerry Wayne Clay.
