A Rememberance for Clay

A celebration of life was held on August 31, 2008 in Lander, Wyoming. It was a beautiful day and many great folks were able to attend and help us remember a life well lived.

Some fun stories were told and if you have any additional stories involving Clay and his "whacky ways" we'd love to have you share them on this blog.

Here is a meditation prayer which beautifully summarizes our (and Clay's) wishes for all who were part of the celebration and read this blog.

May all beings be happy, content and fulfilled.
May all beings be healed and whole.
May all have whatever they want and need.
May all be protected from harm and free from fear.
May all beings enjoy inner peace and ease.
May all be awakened, liberated and free.

May there be peace in the world, and throughout the universe.

Clay's Smile and Laugh

All afternoon I've heard Clay saying my name in his always friendly, super cheerful way while greeting me with a huge smile and equally large hug. Then I hear his infectious laugh. It makes me smile and laugh...and cry.

When we were working together at RMOC he would say, "Tastes good and good for you". I think he mainly said that when we were drinking, but also during Leigh's Mediterranean night. Remember the theme parties...how about signing our names on the sub-floor before installing the new carpet in the store/office. Clay made those days even more memorable. I can see him walking around the property with his address book, pen, and paper. He was always writing a letter or postcard to someone. He was training Beth in our raft down Browns Canyon when I fell out of the boat and swam for the first and only time. He taught me how to find the constellation Orion.

Several years ago Clay suggested that Jonathan and I spend some time on the ice. I wasn't so sure, but Clay said I would be fine because they had plenty of videos to watch. Always the optimist...always finding the brightest side to everything.

I can see his smile; I can hear his laugh...
