Earlier this week my mom emailed me to tell me that my cousin, Clay, was killed in Iraq. While we weren't close by any stretch of the imagination, he is still family and it was very sad and shocking news. My grandmother has always kept me up to date with what was going on with Clay and his family. Clay is the son on Deborah, the daughter of my grandmother's sister who was killed in a tragic and strange house fire 20 some odd years ago. Clay was married with a nearly 1 and a half year old daughter. I have included some links to a blog who pays tribute to the fallen soldiers and the link to the news story from channel 11 last night. The last link has pictures of Clay and the video that shows his precious daughter and wife.
