Sorry I thought this would add my name automatically. The last entry with the title Longago was from Clarence's nephew - Roger Sauter


So sorry for your lost. Will be praying for all the family. No matter how far along a person is, it still is hard to say goodbye. He was loved and will be missed. I thought when my mom died after 5 years with Alzheimer's disease that she had already left us but there was still an immense feeling of lost when she physically passed away. May God be will you and comfort you during this hard time. He does promise to always be with us and I have benefited greatly from his presence in my life.

Clarence was a man of many interests. He was supportive of my questioning of our family history and entertained us with funny episodes from his childhood. He helped me by giving me permission to gather DNA from him so I could pursue even more family connections leading to more research opportunities. This was the last conversation I had with him. I enjoyed visiting with him when he and Glenna came to Oklahoma. My deepest sympathy to Glenna and the family at this time. We love you and are thinking of all of you.
