I remember Cleatus from Pine Grove High School. He was a gentleman and friend...a good athlete also. To his family, I’m sorry. It’s difficult to lose a husband, sibling or parent. My prayers are with you.
Sincerely with love, Paula Smith Grisham

I believe 75% of the horse owners and lovers in Tippah Co. came from Dry creek, Cleatus, Mike, Shaun, and Grands included.
The Creek will never be the same without Cleatus....he will be missed not only today but always....
Love you Mike, Shaun, and Carolyn
Grands and Great Grands.
