I have been thinking and thinking about you Clarence and what had come of you after I left Methodist. You were a true gentlemen, kind soul and a good friend to me. Always watching out for me. Rest your soul-an angle always gets his wings.
See you on the other side..."lord willing and the creek don't rise" as you would always say.
