Dearest Clydine's family and friends. I wanted to let you know how special your mom and friend was to me. I loved Dean's trait that she would speak her mind regardless if you wanted to hear it or not. I have never met a woman who loved her family so much. She loved with the heart of a lion. I feel so blessed to have gotten to know your mom over the last several years. We shared a lot of laughs and I was able to hear some fascinating stories. Please know my heart hurts for each of you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I loved what Sandy said this morning, that your mom got her wings. Know that she will always be close to you in your heart and mind. She will never leave you and is only a thought away. May your loving memories sustain you through this difficult time. With love and sympathy.

I just cannot believe she has left us. I remember all of the great times we shared when we lived on Ford St. I was proud that we shared my son and he called her Momma too. She has left a huge void in all of our lives. May we find comfort in knowing she now resides with our Lord and Savior. My love to her family and friends

I'm so sorry for your loss. She was such a sweet and caring person. Praying for the family.
To the East family, we know your loss is great and our prayer is for the Lord to provide you with the strength and comfort that only HE can.
We knew her as Dean, never knew her name was Clydine. Dean was truly a caregiver, she cared for her family friends and the community. She was a sweet soul and precious to all who knew her. There was never a time i can recall when she was asked to help and her answer was "no". She will be truly missed as she was truly loved!!!!
Trevor and Tammy Hale
My Mama had Angel Wings years ago she would help anybody that needed help, such a beatiful person inside and out she was a mother to many kids teaching them how to swim. Mama Nora and Blades going to miss you more than life you was my rock and you was more like a mama to them until we meet again Mama I love you.
