Clyde and Jackie were the epitome of their beliefs; kind, generous, loving and truly Christian.

They lived simply but were not simple people, always offering help and assistance when asked. I don't know how many times we set an extra place at the table for someone asking for a handout (they decided feeding the person was better than handing money, since it might well go to drugs or drink).
To learn the art of construction, my dad helped with Habitat for Humanity. When the city of Lawrence (Kansas) decided to bisect their property by putting in the street (yes, they knew the easement was there) they ultimately donated a portion of the site on the opposite side of the street to the local Habitat for Humanity.
My mother was a small person, standing tall at 5' 3". At her memorial, the pastor of the church called her the smallest giant he had ever met. That was the impact and respect that she had.
He and I spent one summer building the home they lived in for 20+ years. In addition to the usual rooms in this house we also included a lapidary and rock shop as well as a greenhouse.
