  • To the Carr family,
    Our thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with each one of you as you grieve the loss of your, husband, your father and your grandfather. Clyde was my cousin and I know I too will be grieving the loss of a wonderful and caring man. If he was your friend he would give you the shirt off of his back should you need one. His family meant the world to him. He was so proud of each and every one of them. I will always remember the backyard Barbecue’s as he loved having his family and friend’s surrounding.

  • To the Carr Family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. We have had the pleasure the past couple of years to have gotten to know Opa and what a wonderful man, husband, father and grandfather he was to you all. He has a very special place in our hearts, especially our son Nate who has had the pleasure of taking part of the family summer crabbing time and spending time with the whole family during New Years. I believe he will be always be watching over you all. God will give your family the strength you need during this time. We send our love to you all.
