We enjoyed Clarence immensely when he wintered (or summered, depending upon his mood) in Arizona. He would come for dinner on holidays when he was here and he always brought a lovely bottle of wine to share. Mike would try to stop by and visit Clarence in Kansas City either going to or coming from his family reunion in Tennessee and he would not have missed the visit for anything in the world. We always wanted Clarence to move back to Phoenix but we knew he missed his family in Missouri and we would just have to share him. We were blessed to know him. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. He was 1 in a million.
