    Your father was a great, giving, loving and caring man. I see these qualities in his children and grandchildren that I know. It was great to have met Clayton two years ago that Christmas Eve at the Van Radens in Moorhead. You are blessed to have had such a wonderful father, Sheila. Clayton is with the Lord and he saving a place for your family with Him. Love you all!

    Rapid City SDA huge hug for all of you in this most difficult time. My mother, Marjorie and Clayton’s father, Tom, were brother and sister. We made many trips to Fargo and stayed with Tom and Alvina. Their entire family are all very special. I will hold you all in my thoughts and prayers as you say your earthly farewells to Clayton. God Bless each and every one of you.
