Clarence was such a kind and caring man with always a smile who will surely be missed by everyone at the Holland Christian Home and by so many more. It's such a comfort to know Clarence is happy and healthy in heaven with his dear family members who have gone on before him and of course he is now with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please accept my deepest sincere Christian sympathy to the whole family.
With thoughts and prayers,
Dottie Balkema
