A good man I will miss You and thanks for sharing your life with our family.

  15. Jimmy Tipton says:

    I knew Clyde from grammar school, high school, and our small rural community. I had an opportunity to speak with him by phone recently, after years of losing touch. His family was-and is- a strong, loving, generous Christian family, and what we spoke about was his love for his wife and their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I am thankful that he and his family were in my younger life, and I pray for comfort and assurance for all who will miss him so much.
