    Hazel and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in knowing that death does not have to be the end. “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” — John 11:25. Nothing can keep us from God’s love, not even death. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Serving with Clyde was an honor. He was hard working, dependable and always a gentleman. He was a wonderful member of our 69th family and I bid him a fond farewell on his 'fini flight'.

    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.Rev. 21:4 We just wanted you all to know that Uncle Murray is resting in the arms of Jesus now. Moma was there to greet him. He will never be forgotten. We love you all. Let the Lord comfort you as you go through the process.

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us! You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us GOD is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.

    Clyde was always ready to assist others. His military bearing, gentle personality and eagerness to help, served as a model for younger members of our Unit. He contributed greatly to the accomplishments of the 69th AES and I am certain he aced his final Evaluation Flight! Bill Krimson

    Hazel, You are in my prayers. I have very fond memories of Mr. Clyde coming to LaFevers Dental Team . We always enjoyed having him in the office and hearing him talk of being with the New York Police Department. He was always smiling and friendly. Praying for peace and comfort, Yvette.
