I am deeply grieved when I think of our loss. Aunt Alice and Uncle Clarence always did more than was expected of them and made this world a little better for me, my family, and for all the others who knew them. When I went to Quitman for the first time after my mom passed away, I was welcomed as if I was blood kin and have always felt that way. I will cherish every moment I spent with them and thank God my family had that time growing up to remember. RIPCarolyn Sue

Love endures the test of time. My days in Quitman will never be forgotten. Much love, Erene, Charlie, and Sam Cobb.

Clarence and Alice Lee Family, I really loved and respected your Mom and Dad! On our farm and ranch it's hard to remember any one but the Harbin's and the Lee's that helped my father, Lamar Shamburger.So many years past without much contact with your parents, but fortunately on some of my trips to Quitman and your Dad calling me, I began visiting with them, before and after Clarence finally moved in with Alice. What Love!!! Most of our conversations were around his time of running the operation. And each visit Clarence would always get around telling the story of the Cattle Drive (late 40's or early 50's my Dad insisted to doing to get a large # of cattle and many with calves from our farm on the Gilmer highway to a designated grazing land on the Yantis highway. I know it must be hard losing both of them in the same day, but we all knew that Clarence was hanging on to care for your precious Mom. I want you to know that if I had not already scheduled movers come tomorrow as I downsize, I would most assuredly be there in person. Since I cannot be present, you can be sure that I will be there in spirit, assuring you of my deep and sincere love and admiration of Clarence and Alice!

I met Clarence at my grandmothers funeral (Abilene Nellie Lee) and he was very kind. He invited me to the family reunion and I went. Because of him, I know a whole other side of my family. He always kept in touch by phone and we had some good conversations. Ill miss our conversations. My sincerest condolences- Angie Bedair
