Donna,
I was reading this obit because it breaks my heart when someone so young dies. Claytor has always been a familiar name, probably even more the reason I started to read it. I finished reading and felt overly connected some how. I looked back to see who the parents were as it didn't register when I read the first time and it hit me like a ton of bricks! Your dear son, Frankie must have grown up to be the same sweet baby I held in my arms while you worked. It was but a short time but I remember oh so well when I babysit him. I am so very sorry for your pain and the loss of your son. Heartfelt condolences to you and yours at such a painful time in life. I can't even imagine!
