I’ve been gone from Manlius for a long time as I graduated from Manlius High in ‘51, got drafted and only got back occasionally after that. However, the time I was there was very special to me and it was because my family and friends made it special and Clayton was surely one of those who made it so special. My wife and I send our condolences to Elaine, Ron and your families.
