There are some people you know and some you are blessed in having known.  Uncle Clyde has been that great blessing in my life. 

He was a born teacher, and a wise mystic soul who just 'knew about things'.  Uncle Clyde was a constant help to our family and had the ability to fix anything regardless of what it was.  He was a student of life, and a loving uncle who became the stability and pillar of our family. 

The day I told him I had named one of the chipmunks who dined on my patio, Little Clyde, he was deeply touched.  Whenever we talked, he would always ask about Little Clyde. 

This was a truly incredible person who said last week that at his age, and with all the pain and agony he had endured, he realized that the most important thing in life is FAMILY.

Uncle Clyde will forever be my hero and an inspiration of the strength and endurance of the human spirit.

At last, he is at peace and no longer in pain.  He has now become one of the 7 Keck Angels alongside his brother and sisters watching over us all.

I will miss you.  I love you.  And,  I deeply thank you, Uncle Clyde.  God bless you always. 

Your niece Nancy Louise and Little Clyde

I will miss you Uncle Clyde. All the times we fished together with dad. I will always remember your smile and lightheartedness that you shared with everyone. And your famous cookies at Christmas. The grandchildren  were right they always were served with juice. Love and blessings. Your Niece, Mary
