He was my great uncle, and I loved him. He had a sparkle in his eyes and a great smile that was inviting to all. He had Jesus in his heart. What a wonderful family man, and man of God. I’m just sorry that I was too far to be there in person to say my condolences.
My love to all of the Mann family. Sally, God Bless You.

Uncle Clarence was the constant voice for love and dedication in the Mann family. He was an inspiration to me and many others. The goal of all Christians is to strive, through the work of the Spirit, to live a life as close to the example of Jesus as possible. Uncle Clarence was as close as anyone I’ve ever known.
He will be missed by al who knew him but those who did know hime also know he is now with his beloved Jesus surrounded by nothing but love and joy.
