"Clarences' Family,
I have thought so often of you all. I know your loss is great. I am truly sorry. My son was with Clarence on that fateful day in Iraq. His heart was broken and saddened beyond words, for they had been good friends. He wears a heros bracelet in memory of Clarence each and every day.It is engraved with his name and the last time they were together. Though my son too, was struck by an IED, he recouperates. He has had 5 reconstructive surgeries, I was with him at his last surgery and as he handed me his watch and memorial bracelet, I read it and felt I should share with you that Clarence lives on in many hearts of those you may not know but also love Clarence. God Bless you all... especially to his wife, children and family."
Pam Doxstader Hawkes of Farr West, Utah/USA

"I know its been a while since your passing but I have just learned of it and I am deeply saddened by this. We became really close before I left Germany and I considered you one of my best friends if not the best. You and I had some great times and many many laughs and I considered you to be my brother. My deepest condolences go out to your family. I will never forget you brother. RIP."

Natascha Gernert of Berlin, Germany

"After a wonderful Memorial Day service at our church, First Baptist Orlando, I picked up a flag in a field of thousands, and Clarences name was on it. I have been praying for his family and want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I know the holidays can be a bit sad, but I there is a new song out that helped me put my saddnes into a new perspective. It's called THANKFUL and is sung by Josh Groban and goes like this:
Some days we forget to look around us
Some days we can't see the joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give
so for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.....

I know that I would not have the freedoms I have now, if it wasn't for men like Clarence. And for that, I am THANKFUL."
Roxanne Britt of Apopka, Fla. USA

"To family and friends, my thoughts and prayers go out to you now and throughout the years. Your soldiers sacrifice for his country will NEVER be forgotten."

INDYA of VA mech.U.S.A

"WOW!! I haven't written on this or any other guestbook. I think for a while i was in denial and just didn't think about it, because if I dont think it didn't happen. Part of my stages of grief. Now im accepting, hopefully passing depression. I think about you a lot. I haven't been the best but hopefully you are proud of me. Me and Indya have been closer, which sometimes makes me believe everything happens for a reason. I wish it didn't have to happen like this. I am so glad that I was able to talk to you that day in TN, and hear your voice. I feel that you were there at my graduation smiling down on me. I wrote a paper in english class about my trip to TN, and why it holds so many memories for me. It was nice that we all got to talk to you that day, i can still remember our convo, and mom saying she wanted you to bring a shot glass, :-) and you said how about I come home. And you did come home. Do you know that at your funeral when the preacher said his final words a flock of birds flew over you. It was wonderful. On memorial day I heard our song Hero. I can remember us at mom's house, watching spiderman and then the song came on, and I loved it soooooo much, that i had to play it over and over again. And you said do we have to listen to this, and i said yea its for you. U knew i was just saying it at that moment, But that same day i actually listened to the words and it is my song for you. It was sooo ironic how I heard it on that day on the way to my mom's house. I love you soooo much. I want this pain to end, Hopefully this war will be over and other families can be relieved. Everyday some is fallen and it's a constant reminder of what we have lost. I know that you and your mom are happy in heaven. Remember that time mom took you over mrs. mary's house and she was sooo happy because she didn't know that you were here. That was soooo nice. :-) I love you and hope you are well. One day I will see you again, and " only a hero can save us" and you will forever be my hero."
Kaneisha of USA

"Hey Clarence. We miss you so much words can't explain. Indya is growing beautifully. She is already smoking them at track. I am very proud and I know you are smiling at her as she falls in your footsteps. She will be doing track next year when she gets in 6th grade. We are still very proud of you. You are our favorite hero. We love you."

"Family members of Clarence,
I was in the same squad as Clarence in Iraq. I have several pictures of him that I would like to send to you. Clarence was a great friend to me, and I'm sorry it has taken this long to find his family. I know that he would not have. I miss him dearly and think of him daily. His sacrifice will never be forgotten, his memory will live on forever. "Then good night, peaceful night, Till the light of the dawn shineth bright, God is near, do not fear Friend, good night."

He will be missed and never forgotten."

"Big Baby,
You were a great friend and I love the memories that I have of serving with you and of having fun in Germany with you. You taught me everything that I know about the AVLB. I remember two years of working with you in the 9E motor pool. Whenever things got bad you were always there to lighten the mood in the squad with jokes. I remember pulling weeks of 12 hour shifts of guard duty in BK in a shack with only you to talk to. And what great conversations we had. I keep a picture of you and I with some German soldiers on my desk along with an AVLB end-connector. I know your livin' it up in heaven now and I hope we get to hang out again some day. Rest In Peace Brother."

"To Clarence's Family:

There are no words to express the sorrow I feel for your loss. I was there at the aid station when the brought Clarence in. I talked to him and held his hand while the medical personnel worked feverishly to stabilize him. Amazingly, through the pandemonium of clattering equipment and orders shouted, Clarence was calm and quiet. It was clear to me that Clarence was at peace with his Maker and knew that whatever the outcome, things were going to be okay. I was not so strong, I guess. After the helicopter left, taking him to the Combat Support Hospital downtown, I walked back to the TOC, crying and praying that he would still be able to walk and play with his children. But God had other plans. I am just thankful for that moment of God's peace that Clarence saw fit to shared with me. I will carry that memory always. May God bless all of you and help your hearts to heal."
