I have so many wonderful memories of growing up and spending time at the Cantley's, I spent a lot over night stays and I was always made to feel like one of her Kids. Claryce was a wonderful person, Kind, Sweet and Gentle always puting others first. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Love and Hugs to Linda, Lewis, Larry and Lloyd and all their families'
