  1. I see trees of green, red roses to, I see them bloom for me and you and I think to myself what a wonderful world....

  2. Uncle Clarence,
    You were definitely the life of the party wherever you went, I know you were very excited about coming to my wedding and why God decided of all the days to take you that morning I will never understand. I hope you are at peace now and your family loved you more then you knew.

  3. I meant to stop and see you so many times this summer. I meant to laugh and sing with you and talk about life and silly things. I meant to let you know what you've meant to me and that I loved you and your smile and all that was wonderful about you. I meant to do all these things. I never dreamed I wouldn't have another chance. At least not here, not now. I'll miss you Clarence. Love, Sue
