I Lost a Friend Today

A note to a friend and everyone in our community.

I lost a friend today, to the BIG C. He was my boss, my supervisor and I am proud to say my friend. He has lived in the Caldwell area now for many years. He just bought a house, finally and gratefully and luckily got a decent paying job that equaled his talents. A veteran he served in the Army. He was a Building Supervisor across the street from my building for a few years and became a Supervisor with my company three years ago. A hard worker and my boss.  He was a proud family man. He has three beautiful, loving and talented young daughters and a loving wife that are now left with a heartbreaking void in their lives. They so deserved to have their father longer than this. He had visions of seeing them graduate school and college and raising his grandkids. God bless them and him. He has given much of his life to his family, our nation and community and I just wanted folks to recognize that he was one of those hard working people out there. My prayers go out to you Clay up there in heaven and  God bless you & your family , if ever they need help I will be there and so will all your friends.

Rest in Peace .

Wayne P.

What a nice article. Clay was my building supervisor years ago and he worked very hard to manage multiple tenants, address issues quickly, and maintain the property. I always felt safe knowing he was next door. I'm sorry he didn't have more time with his family. My thoughts are with them.
