Remembering, missing and loving our buddy every moment of every day for the past year and into the future. Gregg & Jennifer Mace and family.
December 08, 2016
Today, December 8 is the 75th anniversary of Uncle Clayton enlisting in the U. S. Navy on Monday, December 8, 1941. I know this because it is one of the many stories he told me because I went on active duty in the army on Thursday, December 6, 1979 and I went to apologize to him that I wanted to go on his December 8 day or at least December 7, Pearl Harbor Day but everything military was close on Pearl Harbor Day and not open on Saturday. He chuckled and asked if I had lost my mind worrying about such stuff and patted me on the back. He recounted those we the same reason he went on December 8 because Pearl Harbor was bombed the day before on Sunday a few hours after noon Church service New Orleans time and nothing was open. To hear him talk, he took the attack on the U. S. very personally. He cipould not sleep that night he was so upset he went to the recruiters office when the sun came up and waited till they opened. Only a true hero runs into a burning building to save someone or towards a war when others are fleeing the bullets and attack. Well, Uncle Claytonwas that hero and so much more, a devoted American who valued the safety of his democracy more than he valued his own life and safety. Thanks Uncle Clayton, there is not a day that goes by I don't think about you with pride. Thank you for your service. With love and gratitude, Gregg Mace.

I am too little to type but I told my Mom to type the words and I spoke. I am Owen, I am six, and my Mom Susan called him Grand Uncle Clayton but I called him Great Grand Uncle Clayton. I always had fun visiting my Great Grand Uncle Clayton at Christmas, the dog Mardi Gras and things like that. It was sad at Lakelawn but Grandma Jennifer said Uncle Clayton is with Jesus now and is not hurting anymore. I am glad Great Grand Uncle Clayton is not hurting, and happy he is with Jesus, but I will miss him. I never saw my Grandpa cry till Lakelawn. I'm sorry everyone is sad and crying. I love Great Grand Uncle Clayton.

I remember all the pictures on our wall in military Uniforms of you in WWII, my Grandfather Tad in the 1950s, my Dad in Desert Storm, my Great-grandfather Teddy in WWII. My Tad would explain everyone's story and be so proud, especially of you. My Grandmother would also tell me proudly of you flying in the Cuban Missile Crisis and show me the newspaper articles she kept of you in her keepsake box. I grew up thinking and still do that you were as important as Abraham Lincoln and President Roosevelt. I remember the fun and happiness we always had when Grammy, Tad and you were all together. Even though you are separated from us for now, I know you are doing well now because my Grandfather always said Clayton always does well wherever he goes. Bye Uncle Clayton, we love and miss you, Emily Mace.

I remember when I could first walk in the 1980s anticipating the fun visiting my Grand Uncle Clayton. You asked me once why you were a Grand Uncle and I said because you're related to my Grand Parents silly. You said I was like my father and laughed. I remember yelling joyfully to go to Mandeville and play on the Alligichey Horseys which was our attempt to say Alligator Horses which were the old rusty riding toys shaped like horses, ducks and such at the Old Mandeville old play spot. I was always having fun and happy when we had functions with you, my Grammy and Tad and Grand Aunt Dotty.
Love, Susan Mace

I'll always remember the happiest times were with you, my Grammy & Tad all together during holidays. I loved all the fun we had when we were with you. All my memories of you are so happy. Take care of my Grandmother and Tad and Aunt Dotty. I couldn't say Doris and I'm the oldest so it's my fault we call her Aunt Dotty, she said it was OK and always smiled.
Love, Liz Mace (Little Liz :)

Thanks for calling me a beautiful girl for over 35 years! It was a privilege being called beautiful by someone so handsome as you :) Thanks for risking your life to liberate people you didn't even know in WWII. You are a beautiful Soul and I know you are with my Jesus now.
Love, Jennifer Yong-Im Mace
