Joanne was beautiful in every way. In sickness and in health, her caring for friends and family was limitless and constant, and her accomplishments in business and in education, far-reaching . And yet, she remained humble. Joanne faced adversity with amazing strength and courage, still always thinking about others. No matter what her role—wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, nurse, businesswoman, friend, etc., she was and will remain an inspiration. She will be remembered and loved always.

When we lost our beloved Michael, there was NEVER a question as to who we would choose to take care of him. Buddy and Diane were not only professional, but caring, compassionate and always available to us. Laying our Michael to rest was the most difficult thing we ever had to do and Buddy and Diane made it so much easier. Buddy sat down with us, planned everything and when he saw things were too much he told us, "Ill take care of it" and he did. We discussed our wishes, Michael's wishes and he took care of it all!!! What a HUGE burden he took from us. Most of all, Thank you for treating our Michael with the care and respect he deserved. You are outstanding in in what you do, you are wonderful, caring and compassionate and I hope you know how very grateful we are. We are FOREVER grateful to you and HAVE NEVER and WILL NEVER use anyone else. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you. May God Bless You.

Testimonial for Patrick Clay: Par Clay was not only a treasured friend, but he had become a family member. We always looked forward to celebrating various events: birthdays, holidays, ball games and just watching TV. Pat was a wealth of knowledge .There didn't seem to be a question that he couldn't answer. He was so kind and understanding, with a great concern for people. What courage and strength he displayed. Many times he tried to pass on his positive views to me. I'll never forget the door bell ringing and there was Pat.--trying to lift my spirits with encouraging words. What a cheerleader! How fortunate the Clay Family is to have such a role model as their father. He truly loved his children and adored his wife, Donna. Pat must have suffered, but one would never know truly a model of Christianity for all of us to embrace. Rest in the knowledge that the love you shared with each other is a bond that even death can't destroy. May you find peace in God`s infinite mercy. God Bless You
