I remember how calm clayton was. I was an emotional wreck one day and came home to see Clayton already at our house. He didnt say anything but just smiled and immediately everything I was feeling was silenced. He hinself was calm and somehow calmed the storm in me. He listened thoughtfully to how my day was and reassured me with words I needed to hear. It wasn't much but it was enough. Through his struggles and pain, he made others feel calm. He was always putting others before himself. Clayton, I didnt know you long but your gentle, kind heart impacted me greatly. I hope to forever emulate your kind spirit to all those around me.
