    We were very saddened to of learned of Clydes death . He was a very caring and wonderful man! 3 years ago when we lost our home and had to move, Clyde and Art Niles were thete to help. My husband and I will never forget the kindness we received from a man that only knew of us from his friend Art! But that was the kind of person he was and we were blessed to have known him. May you rest in pease and God Bless your family and friends, with his loving comfort!
