A graduate of the prestigious Cornell University, he was a great employee who loved his family and was involved in giving back, because he knew the good future he had because he grew up with opportunities not everyone has and he made sure to be grateful and humble. He was just a great kid!
Heartbroken to hear his father cry, while telling me of his loss, brought me right back to when our family had the doctor come out and tell us the dreaded news that my son, Tommy, was not going to make it, and we had to prepare for the biggest loss you can imagine after his death caused by spinal meningitis.
While talking with the grieving dad, I had to hold back tears to make it through the call. When I shared with him that I knew that he was going through, this amazing man could only think of his wife and what she was going through. He asked if I could spend some time talking with her about my experience, and I prayed for strength to help this mom through this difficult time, because someone did that for me (Angie Green) and I need to pay it forward.
We never know what minute, hour, or a day can hold. This could never be more true than for the Clancy family right now, as they begin their journey through grief. I am asking that everyone who might read this will say a prayer for them.
