Clyde was a guy who coluld tell the most interesting stories, he told me of his young life and got me into writing it all down so others would remember his life. He made you feel like you were there. It was something I wouldn't have missed out on for the world. He always kept me wishing to hear more and I still want too. I miss your stories so much. I got into keeping the family tree because of his stories and what a journey that has been. Thank you Clyde
