Clarence and Marie
“Tell me what you’ll need,
and I’ll show you how to do without it,”
said the kind old man
who lived across the road.
But he and his wife did a lot for us
(a young couple and a baby)
living far away from home,
our friends and relatives.
They became our second parents,
inviting us over for holidays,
running us to Bible Studies,
offering us help and encouragement.
We lost each other over the years,
but we’ll always be grateful for them.
