Dear Gene, your Dad and Mom meant a lot to me. Clyde was one of the most godly men I have ever met.He share so many memories about his trips with your Mother,to the Holy Land.I never got tired of hearing them.Clyde could make you feel that you were right there seeing what he saw.He talked about his job and your Moms.How smart she was.When he spoke of her,I could see and feel the love he had for her.I am so blessed to have been a part of their lives.Helping them in her last days on earth was such a joy and honor.We had so many times of loving and laughing.It is not often that you get to witness that kind love and commitment.
I know that your Dad is where he has long to be and for that I am so happy.But I will have to be honest and tell you that I am gong to miss our talks.Clyde wasn't just a friend ,he was mentor and I loved him like a second Dad. Clyde could give me the best advise on anything I asked him about.He will be deeply missed.God bless you and your family.Love Debra
