I'm not sure how I'm related, but I'm sure I am. The only name I recognized in the OBIT was Lee Roy Cloer, but I do not recall why that name is familiar to me. Norman sent this OBIT to me, and I have met Norman. He is married to my first cousin once removed Pearlene Cloer Newman. My prayers are with the family.

Linda, my dear, so sorry about Donnie going to his eternal home. Donnie was a ray of sunshine, always smiling and very gentle person when it came to sharing a word or even a visit wherever you would meet him. Loved you both!
