    Our sincere condolences to Clarence’s family. We’ve know Clarence for 15 years and consider ourselves very fortunate to have had that opportunity. Our first meeting took place in his taxi cab and we quickly became aware that he was not your everyday driver. In response to our concern that we’d be late for our flight, which was in no way due to Clarence, he suggested that we contact him directly and promised to be early for every call. As all who knew him will predict, Clarence was true to his word. But that was only the beginning of his unique warmth. He played his favorite country and western music for us, baked us delicious muffins, and recited “Rindercella and the Pransome Hince” for us (on more than one occasion). He introduced us to his well-loved dog, Crystal, and told us about growing up in Nova Scotia — a heritage one of us share with him. Clarence continued to drive us to the airport over the years, even after he retired. We had many happy lunches with him at Pelican Pier and once shared a “Hank Over” at the Ranchman’s. We will miss you, Clarence, and wish you smooth seas and happy trails. Fondly, Anne and Gerry
