From Chicago and beyond...memories of Uncle Clarence flood my memory. I could never be in his presence without sincere laughter; nor will I ever forget his incredibly hearty chuckle. Most precious to me is that though I lacked confidence in myself, he was always full of encouragement. He could see possibility in every circumstance, and even in the discouragement I felt in myself.

When I told Simona of his passing, she also conveyed how much she always liked him.

He will definitely be missed, but never forgotten.

I am so sorry for the loss you must feel as immediate family. Sending you love and prayers for grace and peace.
