R.I.P. Clyde William Kump


's Funeral.jpg

Yesterday was the funeral for my dear brother-in-law, Clyde William Kump.    He died from lung cancer.  His widow, Rene, is only 49 years old.  He has a posterity of children and grandchildren who will miss him.

I visited him in Missouri one last time a few weeks ago and hurried to paint this tribute to him and his wife.  I hope Rene will find comfort in this remembrance.  I put my whole heart and soul into it.

The painting was displayed at his viewing and funeral.

The portrait will be a beautiful memory for Aunt Rene and a source of comfort for her in the years to come.

I worked with Clyde at Parvus for a few years. He was a great man. I “ran” into him again (I had left the company a year or so before) at Best Buy and met his wife and heard of his cancer. I was happy to see him one more time and be able to talk with him. He seemed to be getting things in order which is a blessing in and of itself that he had time to do so. I wish the best for his dear wife, children, and especially the grandchildren he took into his home to raise. My God bless all.
