The Bedillion family has my and my faimily's condolences. Clyde was a wonderful man and a great neighbor. I used to live on the other side of Breakneck Hill, just below Howard and Edie Crouse, in that mobile home, around 1979 - 1983. I used to go to his garage for automobile service. One winter night my wife, a friend, and I, were going home after visiting another friend in Dogtown. We came upon a turn in the road and skidded off to the side. We weren't going fast at all, but the roads were snowy and icey. The car just laid down on its side in the snow off to the side of the road. We had to walk over a mile in the cold and dark to get to a phone to call Clyde to come out and help us. It was well past 11 pm by then. He came out with a couple of his boys and got us out of the ditch. The car was okay. I asked him how much I owed him and he said don't worry about it. That's the kind of man he was. I will always remember him for his kindness.

Deepest sympathy to entire family. We are so sorry for your loss. Words cannot ease your heartache at this time but know that I sure thought alot of Cylde and he will not be forgotten. He was always willing to help a neighbor and I so enjoyed his sense of humour. May God hold each of you in the palm of his hands during this difficult time. Love, Tina Crow Green
