Was just catching up on my hometown news when I read about the passing of Clay.

The first telephone campaign I was a volunteer for was to re-elect Clay. Everyone made the calls from an office building in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Emilie, my thoughts are with you.

We moved to Fort Lauderdale only a few years ago. Very soon we learned about Senator Shaw, he certainly has many friends in the area! We had the honor of meeting him at an event organized for him shortly after we moved here. We send our deepest condolences and our prayers to his wife and to his entire family.

I first met Clay Shaw Jr. back in early 90's after I moved here in 1990. At first I was just his Auto Detailer on his Jaguar which had a Florida License Plate on the back of it which was had the letters - (FT LAUD). Clay Shaw Jr. also had a classic 442 Oldsmobile (Convertible) which I also worked on as well. Then as time progressed me and Clay Shaw Jr. Eventually we became friends. Clay Shaw Jr. back then was one of my very first clients here in South Florida. Clay Shaw Jr. introduced me to his son J.C. Shaw and his other son who is also named Clay Shaw as well and his wife Emilie. This indeed was a family to be proud of. Clay Shaw Jr. in my opinion was one of the most down to earth human beings that no one could hold a candle to EVER!!!!!!!! I definitely down through the years could easily see why Clay Shaw Jr. always ran unopposed and it was because of his accountability and integrity which was engrained into his very being. At times he was a man of few words but when he did speak he definitely would let you know what was on his mind. He was the type of person who enjoyed meeting people and he also had a "HEART" bigger than the whole State of Texas. God definitely broke the mold when he created Clay Shaw Jr. I will forever treasure the friendship which GOD allowed me and Clay Shaw Jr. to have. Rest in Peace. God Bless the entire SHAW Family.
