  1. Jennifer Wooden says:

    Mr. Clarence was always such an incredibly sweet man. Even through his physical adversaries , he always had a smile. I am so blessed to have known him, although for a short time. I smile knowing that the moment he closed his eyes on earth, he was in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  2. Billy McKinney says:

    Glad to have Clarence as my friend and brother in Christ! Praying for you, Jean, and the family!

  3. Elaine Donley says:

    Your fight is over and you are safe in the arms of Jesus. You will be missed by many many people.

  4. Shirley Walden says:

    Clarence was always very special to me and my family. I remember all the good times when the kids were all growing up. They were wonderful years filled with fun and happiness. The kids and grown ups liked to play games of all kinds. These were the best years. I know he is in Heaven now with a lot of his family and friends enjoying his days. We will all see you again Clarence, but we will miss your sweet smile here on earth for a while.

  5. Sandra and Charles Cook says:

    Jean and family, we wish God’s comfort and peace for all of you. We remember Clarence as a

    at Free Will Baptist Bible College. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Jean and family LaDonna and John
    And Hoover,

    My love and concern to all of you.
    I remember Clarence Dale and LaDonna from
    Childhood in Batesville AR. Their grandfather
    Rev Herman Lewis was my pastor as a child
    At Mt Bethel church.
    Hoover and Bill were such wonderful friends
    And help with the Arkansas State work.

    My deepest sympathy to you all

  8. Mary Crum says:

    Miles may distance us from your family today, but know that our hearts are close, and our sympathies are deep. Clarence was a huge part of Family Ministries and he will be remembered as one of our most cherished friends.

  9. Ken & Carolyn Riggs says:

    Jean: Carolyn and I are so sorry we were not able to attend the visitation nor the service at Cofer’s. She had serious back surgery a few months ago and is still recovering. In addition, she is having breast surgery on Monday, October 19, and the doctors thought it wise for us to be careful about getting in crowds because of COVID. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Clarence was a dear friend to me personally.
