Clint, my friend for so many years. As kids we rode motorcycles, raced cars and pulled some crazy stunts together. I miss you every day and our incredibly funny conversations. You were a man of honor, intelligence and sincerity and thoughts of you never leave my head. I still hear your laugh and see your funny grin as we would reflect about so many of our great times together. The last pistol you built for me is now my office center piece that serves as a continued reminder of your incredible talents. I pray that you are at peace and watching over us all, protecting others as our guardian angel. You left an indelible imprint on all who knew you.

God Speed and God Bless

Miss you my friend
