Terrie, our deepest condolences to you and to your family during this difficult time. We were blessed to have known you and Clyde through FoEFR. Clyde was one in a million.

Clyde, You may have kept your wings hidden from view, but we knew that you are an Angle who walked the earth. Your purpose on Earth was to help others, to spread joy, happiness and to bring love to everyone and everything. You had a glow about you when you smiled, your laughter was contagious. You loved your family and everything around you with all of your heart and soul.

You reached out to help others, no questions asked. You were an instant friend to all and everyone just loved you. You are a true Gift from God and it was an honor to have known you. You made a difference in so many lives. We were the lucky ones, we were so blessed. You are in Heaven now with God, I know you will continue to help others from there.

My husband and I want to thank you and your family for everything you did for FoEFR. You all are amazing people. We just love you all. Thank you again, Clyde. We will miss you so much. When we think of you, our hearts fill with love and happiness.

Terrie and family. i was shocked to read Robert Ballards’ post about Clyde this past weekend. i really liked him when we worked together at GE. he always tried to do the right thing there but sometimes management made it impossible. i knew then and now that he was a good, Godly man….you could tell it just by talking to him. i know this is a very hard time for you and your family but please take comfort in your knowledge that he is now well with a new body that will never be sick again and that he’s waiting for you just inside those gates. love you all.
