This website was created in the memory of our beloved brother and son, Clint Reagan, who died at the age of 20. Clint is very much alive in our hearts and always will be. He is and will continue to be as much as a part of our lives in spirit as he ever was.
"The love that is in a parent's heart stays deep, strong and true. No matter where you go, that love is there with you". Quote by Edgar Cayce.

Candy Lightner, founder of Madd, says, "Grief has a beginning, a middle and the rest of our lives."
In the beginning this unspeakable loss was so big, it was hard to find our voice. There were times that it was hard just to breath. We felt our loss in every cell of our being and down to the core of our soul.
We miss Clint deeply, as we are trying to find ways to balance our pain and our boundless love.
Thank you for visiting Clint's site. We want to thank everyone for the thoughts and remembrances, because they warm our hearts beyond measure.

"As we learn to carry these feelings, we realize there is room in our hearts for more than the pain and anguish of separation. I hope one day you find you have peace along side of the pain."
It seemed sports were always on his mind. When Clint was young, he would practice signing his name in hopes of one day being a famous baseball player that would be asked to autograph baseball cards. Perhaps now he will be the angel in the outfield.
We have so many precious memories to help fill the empty spaces in our hearts. But there will always be a hole left there after Clint died.
We were blessed to have shared a wonderful childhood with Clint and to have had 20 years together. But, our beloved son and brother left us too soon. We miss his big hugs and bright smiles so much. We miss his singing, his whistling, his laughs, and the smell of his favorite cologne. We also miss the joyous moments he brought to the family.
We still look for him to come walking through the door, instead he walks through our hearts. One always knew when Clint was in the room. Heck, we knew when he was anywhere in the house. We miss the way he filled a room and filled the house. Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote, "The presence of that absence is everywhere."
This is one of Clint's favorites pictures. He labeled it Sexy Man.
"I'm glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone." ~Dr. Seuss
"They say that time in heaven is compared to 'the blink of an eye' for us on this earth. Sometimes it helps me to think of my child running ahead of me through a beautiful field of wildflowers and butterflies; so happy and completely caught up in what he is doing that when he looks behind him, I'll already be there."
"The most important thing that survives death is love. It's what we are made of, what we communicate with, and what we ultimately return to. Most spirits come to us from love, to let us know they still care, sometimes to warn us or to complete unfinished business, and mostly to connect heart to heart with us again. Love will always be our lifeline--to the spirits around us, the people who are still on this plane, and to the universal unconditional love that is God."
