    Dear Boldebook Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed at John 5:28, 29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses, we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended--free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this has comforted me and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

    I’m just reading the Friday newspaper and see the picture of such a wonderful man that has gone to heaven. Ms. Maxine, Mary, Tony, Linda and Debra I am so sorry for your lost. I wish I could have paid my respects to a special man. Anyone who worked with him and his knowledge of every tank car and track from every plant in Geismar knew you could count on him for information and help. Mary I will be talking with you soon. Know my prayers are with you. Love Darla

    It has been a great honor to have known Clyde for over40 years. He was a kind loving man but one was not to ruffle his feathers. He would for sure let you know. I will miss him.

    Maxine i know you are hurting right now and if there is anything I can do please do not hesitate to call

    Love you

    Maxine, So sorry for your loss. I was just talking to my neighbor about you and Clyde yesterday telling her I need to get in touch with you. Guess that was God's way of letting me know. So sorry I never got to meet Clyde and talk about the Boldebook family. God bless you and family.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Boldebook, but have been friends with Debra for 15 years and she absolutely adored her dad. Sounds like he was a wonderful man. God bless the Boldebook family during this time of grief and sorrow.
