From Jessica Castillo 09/18/09:

I just recently heard about his death and there is nothing on your site about him and well there is so much to know. I was blessed to meet him and become a friend when he was stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC. 

I fell in love with him. at that time no one called him Clay we called him Powder cause he was white as powder. Oh and he was a great dancer he was easily spotted. I think i went out just in hopes that I would talk to him. 

Did i mention that he was a fantastic singer? he was I loved hearing him. im not too sure but i think he was in the army choir if not he should have been. every year until we lost contact he would sing me happy birthday.. 

He was beautiful and very speacial to me. What hurts is now he will never know how much he truely ment to me.
