|Good night sweet boy. You will be forever missed.|
"I cant believe it has been a year since you left us. I think of you everyday as I pass by your Mass avenue apartment. I miss your surprise visits with Jethro that always came with a smile from you.
Miss you, Marie"
"You are always here with us Clyde. Every single day. And every single day we miss you more and more. XO Henry, Daria & Sophie"
We miss you every day. You are always with us."
"For Isaiah and me, the memory of sweet generous Clyde rests in the palm of the old fashioned catcher's mitt Clyde gave Isaiah. It sits still in a place of honor on Isaiah's bookshelf. We'll forever remember him."
"Miss you everyday Clyde!"
"Clyde you will always be in my heart. Keep them all guessing with your magic. I will never forget your visits to Long Island. Xoxoxo"
"Happy Birthday to Us, Clyde!! You, 50 today and me 49 yesterday! We spent many birthdays together over the phone talking as the clock passed from my birthday to yours. Today I picked up a fabulous cake to celebrate your special day... and all our special memories. Love, Marcie xxx"
"Happy 50th Clyde! I miss you and still can't believe your are gone.
I need to find a basset hound to hug in your honor.
"Happy 50th Clyde!!! Miss you everyday......"
"My sympathy and respect go out to Joan and Bill and all Clyde's siblings. I'm sure your continued love and support helped Clyde be the man he was in spite of his difficulties. Be at peace, Clyde."
"Clyde was always delighted it seemed whenever he greeted anyone. I was nourished by his smile and real interest in others. What an a gift he gave to everyone. I send my love to his immediate family. With love, Aunt Sue (as he always called me)"
"Clyde, you will be missed by all your cousins and family. One of my favorite memories was at one of the many family gatherings. During a night of dancing, we nicknamed you "Sliding Clyde" because of your cool dance moves! Your beautiful smile and friendly personality made you a favorite with the cousins. Stay close."
"We will think of you often Clyde and remember our nice talks up on Oxford Street. Thoughts and Prayers for all. You will never be forgotten.
Love, Mary & Jim Merchant"
"I know you are in Heaven now, Clyde, working your magical tricks and games and smiling, happily at God because He cannot figure out how your tricks work either...You are and always were the real magician...Families are lucky when given a special gift from God...You are God`s gift to the Sommer`s Family..."
"I am lucky to have known Clyde. I met him years ago on a trip to Boston with my BFF Anne! Clyde was there to greet us, entertain us and give me lots of facts about the Boston area. He made me very welcome and did so again on the many more occassions. Always there with a smile, Clyde will forever be in my thoughts, just as the entire Sommers family is. Big Love."
"My dear cousin Clyde, Your Godmother, Kathleen Pokorney Gemmel, always had such a special spot in her heart for you. She was there Friday night with cousins Andy and Dennis to greet you and hold your hand as you crossed the great divide, and she will stay with you always. We here already miss you terribly, especially me."
"I was so, so sorry to hear the sad news about Clyde. He was such a truly sweet soul, who always seemed to rise to the challenges of life with extraordinary aplomb. He will be missed. My love to all the Sommers/Kennedys, xo, ksw"
"Clyde, the most caring, loving and funniest man, a truly special person to all who knew him. Clyde is embracing a new journey now and his spirit will always be with us. Michael Welch always liked Clyde, thought he was refreshing. Clyde is not alone. I like to think Michael is his traveling companion guiding him on his journey. Clyde you are missed! Enjoy your new station."
"Both Isaiah's and my thoughts are with you all. It was only two weeks ago that we fondly packed away the old baseball glove and cards that Clyde had given Isaiah. And we both thought of him and those days with him. We all admired and were moved by his gentleness and energy even in the face of his struggles. Rest in peace, Clyde."
"Clyde was a tender, generous and kind man. He always had a smile and something upbeat to share. An enormous Red Sox fan and one of the gentlest people I've ever met. He was also Isaiah's first baseball coach. I still remember him calling me and inviting my son to join his team (Isaiah was overjoyed). Then I became Coach Clyde's assistant coach. Clyde, my wonderful cousin, I miss you."
"To the family, I'm so sorry. Clyde had been working so hard with us on our computer network at CHICLE. We saw him on Friday. I sent some frustrated emails and texts and phone messages this weekend, trying to reach him. I feel terrible. Please feel free to contact me. And I hope someone can care for Jethro."
"Deepest sympathy to all in the Sommers family. Clyde was a fun and interesting guy who mesmerized my kids with his awesome magic tricks! We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers."
"Clyde was a gentle, kind presence, a dear man. He stayed with me for a month one summer and we had long talks about anything, everything, over dinner. I remember the interest and passion he had for so many things, but mostly how much he loved his family. Sending heartfelt condolences and love to my Sommers family at this sudden loss of dear Clyde."
"Though our visits were way too few through the years, Clyde’s gift for overcoming distance—always relating with instant warmth and immediacy—touched me deeply. With great sadness, gratitude, and love, Cecily"
"It's hard to believe I won't see you on next Thanksgiving. Thank you for including me as a part of the family, my best memories in Boston have always been spending the time with you and your family at the special dinner. I will always remember you when I go to Boston in winter."
""Clyde"...Was always there if you needed help, no matter the circumstances, he'd roll up his sleeves and say "let's go". The biggest heart, would do anything for anyone. His spirit and sense of humor were like none other, and they will be with me forever. His smile and love, will forever be missed, never forgotten. Love you buddy...Peace"
"My heart goes out to the whole family. Clyde was a close childhood friend and we had many wonderful adventures. I had the pleasure of knowing him from age 7-16. Clyde was such a friendly gentle soul and I was better for knowing him."
"My heart aches for Auntie Joan, Uncle Bill and all of the Sommers family as I know too well what it is like to lose a brother. I will always remember cousin Clyde's great smile and the fun time's spent together at the Pokorney family reunions. Love & Hugs to all....."
"Clyde will always be in my thoughts. At Bob said it is truly sad when you losse a brother way too soon as Melissa and I did with Dennis. And it is always a tradgey when a mother must bury a son as Nellie did with Harold and Audrey did with Dennis. My love to all of you Sommers."
"Clyde was a great guy who I had the pleaseure to be roomates with. We had a lot of fun together....
We had one of the dirtiest apartments that Somerville had ever seen but hey, we are were single guys and didn't care.
Miss ya buddy."
"RIP Clyde. I'm very sad to hear this news. We had tons of great conversations and laughs together. You always put a smile on my face and made me giggle. You were my friend. I feel lucky to have met and known you. Your spirit will live on. XO"
"I remember Clyde to be sweet and kind (kindness being the most important trait in the Pokorney family). I am thinking of all the Sommers, especially the siblings. Losing your brother, as I did, is a particularly horseshit experience. We have been cheated."
"Clyde was a true friend, always willing to help in anyway he could, His unique perspective on life was refreshing and insightful. I will miss him terribly and feel lucky to have known him, Peace"
"thank you for being my best friend and wonderful uncle to Wylie"
"To dear Clyde, who always was ready to lend a helping hand, who never failed to find the right present or card for a birthday or Christmas, whose heart was so big and without guile, we are diminished by your absence and we miss you terribly. Be at peace.
You will be in our hearts forever."
"Our cherished brother, friend, uncle and son Clyde slipped away in his sleep on July 5th. His life exemplified what it meant to persevere with grace and spirit against all odds. Good night sweet boy. You will be forever missed."
