My condolence to the Thomson family . Gail I am truly sorry to hear of your Family's loss . I can remember you talking about Clay all the time living next to you on Brick row and then again about all your family members . I know just how close you all are and how hard it is loosing a sibling again .
May all those memories you all hold dear pull you through the tears of sorrow. Remembering that he had a good life and you have the memories he left you holding them close in your heart.
I only have one memory to share of him and that is how he made people laugh.We would be sitting on the front steps when he would stop over to your home. crack a joke and make us laugh. He had a way of making any one he came by do that and that's one special thing he gave everyone he met a good laugh and a smile.
May he RIP
Barbara (Haring ) Shuhnicki

I sincerely only have good memories to Clay. I was lucky to meet him at Tire King in the early eighties and soon we became friends. I will never forget all the good times we had, visiting ballgames, going out on road calls for Tire King, having a few beers (or more) and especially his visit to me in The Netherlands. I have always known him as warm, caring and sharing person. Although we were close friends for only a few years I could write a few books about the good times we had. I am sure he will be missed by many. Lots of strength for all those people who must carry on without this great guy. Marcel Peereboom, Oirschot, The Netherlands
