    candle 7The Stine’s lived a couple doors down from us on Danny Lane in O’Fallon. He was always tinkering in his garage. He would sharpen my lawn mower blades.They were the sweetest couple. It was nice to know such a great couple.One time he was out in his front yard & I saw him fall down. We called 911 & it turned out that his pacemaker was doing some weird stuff. It was nice to know such a great couple.

    Your family were great friends to my Mom & Dad , Bob & Marilyn Irvin. I remember your dad making homemade ice cream and bringing it over. He made Teaberry one time. Like the old fashioned Teaberry gum from Clark. That was my favorite gum and ice cream he made.
    I had your mom as my Sunday School Teacher in O’Fallon. Sorry for your loss.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Clair for 38 years as my father-in-law. He was one of a kind. He always stayed busy, often helping others. He loved the Lord and spent countless hours serving Him and His people. I’ll miss him dearly, but I’m glad he is with his Father in Heaven and Maxine and is free of pain.

    My prayers are with you today and this weekend. Clair and Maxine helped me through many hard times. I will miss them deeply. Remember that God is with you through this time of grief.

    We have known and loved Maxine and Clair since the 1960s. Moved away from St. Charles County in 2003, but so glad we stopped to visit with them last year. Both seem happy and doing good. Found out Maxine and I both enjoyed reading the same type books. Was amazed that Clair was not hard of hearing like some of us older ones. We have fond memories.

    I loved Clair and Maxine! They were such special friends to our family! Clair especially loved to tease me when I was a child and I loved it (even though I might not have admitted it!)! =) We have many special memories of them back in the old days in Pennsylvania. Hugs go to Terry, Tom, and Yvonne. Love you guys!
