    Dear Janet and Family
    Clarence was a good man, you could always count on him to tell you exactly where you stand with him. Its a real shame to see him leave you and everyone else so early. He will be missed by many. We wish you all the best. Stay strong Janet, as you know that's what he would want.

    I met Clarence at the Corner Pin Inn a number of years ago, what a really nice guy, played pool with him & against him, he was always a gentleman. Sorry for your loss.

    Dear Janet, my heart breaks for you and your children! I knew Clarence through my husband at OK Builders Supplies, and I had the chance to have conversations with him at the McCurdy branch. He had a certain spunk and zest for life, and I remember the warm look that would cross his face while recounting stories of you. You and I share the same terrible fate, I lost Alan to cancer this past November after a year of being diagnosed, there are no words to lessen the pain. I wish you peace, Debbie Busch
