Clint was my Friend, a kind & gentle man. he came to visit me just after his lady friend had died. Clint was truly saddened by her passing, but told me that he would be ok. it was an honor for me to know Clint. I know that he had a lot of inner turmoil in this life. I am happy that your spirit is free now, fly to the angles my friend, Gods speed.

Clint was more than a close friend of mine. He was more like a BROTHER. His family became my "extended" family. He was also the Godfather of our daughter when she was born in Tawas while I was in Vietnam. We had great times and I will NEVER EVER forget him. Rest-In-Peace Brother!!
