Memories Timeline


  1. I have known Clyde since I was 17. He was a good friend all these years and he could sing so beautifully. He will be missed.

  2. My daddy was an amazing man. Growing up he was stern and strict but that’s what we needed. He set a great Christian example and very grateful God chose me as his daughter. I will forever miss my hero but so thankful I will see him again. I love you daddy, Karen
