  • Clay and Glady have been our neighbours for 7 years. Absolutely the best neighbour you could ever ask for. Clay always had a tool in his hand and was ready to help a neighbour on a minutes notice. Clay was very talkative and very friendly and was extremely proud of his East Coast heritage and his 50 plus trips home.He could talk for hours about growing up in Newfoundland.
