Memories Timeline


  1. Clarence was such a kind man, with a great sense of humor. I will never forget the time I walked around a corner and there was Clarence, holding a jar of water which he promptly dumped over my head! I’m sure heaven is a much more lively place since he has arrived. He will be missed.

  2. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you Jean! May your brother Rest In Peace. Our thoughts and prayers continue. We are here for you! God Bless! LOVE RICH & SHERRY
