  • Clyde and I grew up together as cousins and friends-our mothers being sisters. He was a kind and loving person and although we didn’t see each other for quite some time, I loved him and always will. I’m sad for everyone who will miss him but happy for him to be reunited with our loved ones who have gone before him. God bless him.

  • Carl and family, I have not seen you guys in years but think of you all often. I was very saddened to hear of Clyde’s passing. In this difficult time, I will be keeping you guys in my thoughts and prayers. I know your mom and dad, my dad and mom, and Clyde are reuniting in Heaven now and are watching over us all. May God bless you.

  • Dear Charlie & Family,

    Our deep sympathy to you and your family. The family will be in our thoughts & prayers. May God grant you peace.
