    Lenny and family:
    We are so sorry to hear about Clota’s passing, you all will be in our thoughts and prayers during these coming days. We are so fortunate to have been at the picnic last Sunday and to have enjoyed being with both of you. God will take care of you and your family during this difficult time. Clota shared with me something I shall never forget on that day as we discussed the “so called golden years” she reminded me that the golden years were when we were living under the roofs of our parents and they were paying the bills!

  3. Linda (Buchanan) and Carlton Crenshaw says:

    Lenny and Family,
    Clota will be dearly missed. She always had a beautiful smile and a big hug for me every time I saw her. I think every time I saw her she would tease me about how I said my name when I was a little girl. She was a sweet lady and she shared her love of life with everyone. I know she loved her family more then life itself. She’s in Gods hands now and I hope God helps you heal from the loss of your sweet wife and mother . We are thinking of you all at this time.

    Love, Linda and Carlton

    To Lenny and the rest of Clota’s family–
    We are shocked to hear of Clota’s passing from here to Heaven. Although we know that Heaven has welcomed her and that she’s in the arms of Jesus, that still leaves you here to grieve and mourn her passing. Please know that we are praying for you. We’ll remember her blue eyes, her service to others through her friendliness and caring personality, her choice of beautiful scarves, her cooking, and her kicking your shins under the table when you needed it.
