We just heared about Mr. Clyde. He was like a second father to me growing up in Madison Hgts. He will be greatly missed by all. He was one special "Honey". Please let us know if we can make a donation in his name somewhere. Mr. "B" you are now back together with your buddy "Barney". Rest in Peace my friend. We love you!!
We were so sorry to hear about Clyde. He was a great dad in the "neighborhood." Our families were close growing up and we all had a ball. Nancy and I miss the bowls of chili that we came over and stole when Clyde made his special version of it. I know you all are going thru a very hard time right now, but know that we share in your sorrow and are thinking of him resting in peace now. We are sure he is looking down on you with a wonderful smile on his face with the accomplishment of all his beautiful girls he produced along with the help of their mom. We send our thoughts and prayers to all of you. Nancy also was the one that told me the news and sends her thoughts too. We are all so sorry for your loss. Be glad you had such a long time with him on this earth and you will all be reunited again one day in time. We send our love.
