Mark and Scott,
I am so very sorry to hear about your Dad. He was very special to our family. I'm not sure if you know, but Mom passed away the very same day. Sending love and prayers to you and your family.

I graduated with Clarence in the Class of '57, but it was my husband, David Palmer from the Class of '56, who knew him best.
David and Clarence and Larry grew up across the street from each other on Matthews Street. I am sorry that David is not here to tell you of some of their adventures. He always enjoyed spending time talking with Clarence at our reunions. I am sorry for your loss of his physical presence.
