Uncle Cloyd was a teller of tale tells that fascinated me as a boy and entertained me as an adult. In my mind remember him smiling and laughing, but I know that as boys, David and I gave him good reason to scowl a lot. I wish I could be with you to honor Uncle Cloyd's memory. It's a sad time, but we keep in mind that Christians are nevertheless joyful when a loved ones joins all the prophets and saints in heaven.
