Clyde was a good man. I have so many memories of him and the house in Woodville. He helped to raise me from age 3-18. In many ways he helped to shape me into the forgiving person I am today. No one is perfect and we must always try and see the good in each person we meet.

I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss.... Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there's a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He'll stay close by your side. All those sleeping in their graves will wake up and sing for joy. As the sparkling dew refreshes the earth, so the Lord will revive those who have long been dead."-Isa. 26:19.

I don't know where to start, First of all my deepest sympathy to the family, my thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. Clyde was a big part of my life growing up in Woodville. I considered him my second dad. He gave me advise when I needed it, we camped, fished, fourwheeled, the list goes on and on. All the fun times we all had at the Big House. My heart is heavy hearing of this. I will truely miss him, but I will always have my memories. To Clyde, "I Love You, and Will See You Again One Day". He knew me as Smitty...

Cathryn, Mandy and Lee, I was so sorry to learn about Clyde. He was my close friend during my early high school years. Mr. Sonny, as we called him, could do anything, we thought,and he was the one we always called on to fix our cars or anything needing fixing. I can see him plainly now, driving that good looking 1956 Chrysler with his hair slicked back in the popular "duck tail", not a wrinkle allowed in his clothes and shoes shinned bright. Many times we were heading to pick up our double dates, loaded with cigarettes and chewing gum. Lord how many miles did we log in that Chrysler and his black 1951 Ford cruising after school. Clyde was a good driver and we drove fast. He walked with an air of confidence, head held high and everybody liked him and respected him because he was a good guy. Clyde and i kinda lost touch after high school, but i will always remember him as my good friend.

Cathryn, what a shock learn about Sonny! I had lost track of you two over the years, but never of the memories. My condolences go out to you. Hang tight, and take care.
