    I spent many holidays and several butchering sessions with Clarence and Frances as their daughter was married to my dad’s brother, Elroy. Clarence had such a stern look but oh, how he loved to make the kids giggle. And, he had a quiet voice, but knew what he was talking about. Prayers for Frances.
