Kim and family we are do sorry to hear of your father’s passing. May you find peace and comfort in knowing he is free and in heaven with your mom and all the cousins.
I loved Clair like he was my own grandpa. I enjoyed the moments we shared. He will be missed and I am honored to have spent my last moment with him. I’m a firm believer that our body is a temporary vessel but our spirit lives forever. Love you Clair Bear.
Kim, I am saddened to read of your father’s passing. He was a kind and gentle man who was easy going and fun to talk to. I enjoyed ” sharing a wall” with him
for a few years on Maple Ave. My pleasure to have known your parents for a short time. Fondly, Jane Logan
