Caleb, sorry for your loss, it always sucks to see a child die, and even worse when it is one of you friends. Try to think of the good times together, he has moved on to a soooo much better place. If you need to talk, make sure you do, if nothing more than getting on here and chatting about him. It will make you feel better. Keeping your emotions quiet is not good.

To all of Clayton's friends and family; none of us ever know when our earthly visit will be over. Our young people are our future...PLEASE, think about
your lives and how you can make things better. Talk
to your parents,teacher,counselor and even your
Pastor about your feelings. As "the crow" said, don't hold your emotions in it really is not good for
you. God bless and comfort ALL of Clayton's friends.

Seeing your most loved friend killed in an accident is so weird. He was so happy, energetic, and very confident. Its funny that some such as that to be taken away from you by a measly car accident. Thinking about him, I will cry everytime. I am crying as we speak right now. I LOVE YOU CLAYTON!!!!!!!!!!

Just to let everyone out there know that Clayton has not been forgotten. My daughter planted a tree in our yard in his memory. I think of him every time I walk by it. He was an awesome kid. He was kind to everyone. Mark and Austin, I'm still praying for you. And I truly believe that Clayton is with Jesus now. He will not be forgotten.

How can you say that you would have steered out of danger when you don't know what was going on? Was you the driver of either car? I'm guessing not because "you know how to drive", right? I'll be waiting to see that you killed a small child because you lost control of your car.

You can not control what others do while driving. I'm sure you know this seeming how you are such a great driver. But I hope you can sleep at night thinking that his grandmother wrecked on purpose when I know the whole family and NONE of them would have ever done anything to hurt the other.

Have a great day .

Just ignore this idiot. He does this all the time. We wants you to get upset. He trolls on here under different names. JUST IGNORE HIM. It only makes him happy when you argue with him.
