  • We are all heartbroken over having to say goodbye to Clarence. What started out as just neighbors when we first bought our house grew into a wonderful friendship with our entire family. Clarence and Ruthann are just like family to us. The kids just adore them and ask about them all the time. This was like losing a family member. He was one of a kind for sure! It definitely won’t be the same around here without him! RIP sweet friend! Love Chris, Tara, Q-Man (Quinn), Bryce & Brystal (The B twins as he would say) ❤

  • So sorry Ruth Ann I alway enjoyed our talks at the mailbox.. so for your loss and great friend.. Donny

  • Ruthann, we are so sorry to hear about Clarence. We are glad we had such a nice visit with you both last week. We will keep you in our thoughts.

  • Dear Dad,
    I wish you weren’t gone! But there isn’t anyway to bring you back. But always know, I’m always going to be, “Daddy’s Little Girl!” ❤️
    Even though you and my mom were divorced, you put your feelings aside and was there for me while I cared for my mom in her final days. “Thank you” for that! That’s why I wanted to be right there with you, holding your hand in your final moments and letting you know that you weren’t alone!
    I love and miss you dad! But I’m so thankful for the doctors and nurses that helped ease your pain and suffering! You are at peace now! You are probably talking to Charlie and Joe right now. Tell them I said, Hi. And if you see my mom, Tell her that I love and miss her!!! 🦋
    Until we meet again; Always remember, I love you Dad! Daddy’s little girl, Jenny Lee (Bunnell) Baber
