It’s really sad that only one niece and one nephew were close. I spent every summer at Uncle Clyde’s and Aunt Joyce’s house as well as my cousin Richard who spend most of his childhood with them and took many vacations with them. The announcement was a slap to my face. He was loved by many💔

Michael and I are saddened by Clyde's passing. I suppose we may have only known him for 12 years or so but he always had a ready smile and we look back fondly on times spent with him and Linda. We had great conversations as we had similar outlooks on life. We express our sincere condolences to Linda and also to Clyde's family. RIP Clyde
