To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the "Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" (2 Cor 1:3) that one day, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28, 29) May the words from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

My sympathy to Sonny, Don, Jim and your families in the loss of your father and grandfather.
I was a young newlywed attending Bemidji State University when we lived in the trailer behind Clint's house. Being miles away from home in Nebraska, Clint and Delores took us in as if we were part of the family. Over the years they always welcomed me back to Minnesota with open arms and friendly smiles. Clint will always hold a special in my heart and will be greatly missed. I hope to see you Saturday.
