  • Tom, Rachel, Derrick, Floyd & Jan and other family members —
    We are so sorry of the loss of Clint. We have many good memories of spending time together when the boys were little —that was only yesterday, right?

    Our hearts grieve for you dear ones…at the same time we rejoice that Clint is with his Savior and no longer in pain. How wonderful to know that we can see him again.

    I Corinthians 15:51-55
    “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
    O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”

    Know that you are loved and never far from our thoughts and prayers.
