To Colleen and Family, Bob and I extend our sincere sympathy to you and your family. May your many good memories be a comfort to you in the days ahead. To Clare, Kevin and Ken, I have been thinking about you these past few days with sympathy and also remembering many good times with your family. Growing up in Normanby and being able to visit at your parents home any time, was always fun. I remember some great family Christmas celebrations, but especially the overnight stays when my Mom was in hospital and I got to walk to Gleneden with you! Uncle Clarence was always very kind to both of us and was always interested in some laughter and a good chat! He will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. Please extend our sympathy to your families as well. Bob & Sherry Graham

I enjoyed getting a hug, having a laugh, and getting caught up when I would meet up with Clarence. And I know he always had a smile and a friendly greeting for everyone. It is a difficult time for a family, but you have memories of good times to see you through to the better days ahead. A special "Thinking of You" to Clare and Brenda. Mary Allen

Dear Colleen & family, I was very sorry to hear of Clarence's passing. I have such fond memories of stopping by to visit you both (and Candy & Ginger, of course!) for a visit while delivering the KW Record all of those years ago. I especially remember how Clarence would take on the paper route when my family went on summer vacation (I suspect he was more efficient at it than I was!) He was such an amazing person and I know he'll be missed. I send you my warmest thoughts and condolences at this difficult time, and want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Stephanie
