I was just telling my husband about Clarence Brown the other day. He had worked in the Awana program at Temple Baptist Church in Madison Heights, which his kids also attended. I had a procedure done at the hospital and he was there to help me get from the surgery room to my room. As I was trying to get from the operating table to the gurney I accidentally bopped him in the face with my freshly bandaged hand. I apologized, but he say he had it happen all the time. He was sweet and a great co team leader in Awanas. I believe we were the blue team. I am sure he is enjoying all of Heavens rewards.
