We talk about you so often wondering how and where you are and what a sad way to find out. Last time we saw Clyde was in Dr. Sadka,s office several years ago. We surely had a lot of good times while we worked together.

A beloved member of the GIP "lunch bunch". How loving and kind you were, Donna and Clyde, to me and Troy during his illness. And with what joy you welcomed Ken into our group. Eternal rest grant unto to her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
