My condolences. My grandfather Larry O’Laughlin was great friends with Clive and of course Doreen as well. I’m so sorry to hear that they have passed. Bitter sweet that their timing was so close to one another.

Wanting my Sullivan/Jones families to know how sorry we are to hear of Aunt Doreen and Uncle Clive’s passing. We have fond memories of these beautiful people. I distinctly remember her giggle/laugh, his intriguing stories and their deep felt hugs when we would visit. They were always happy and generous with their love for each other, their kids and our extended family. I’m thankful they are together, as their devotion to each other can remain. Marcy, Marilyn and David ~ much love to you and your families during this difficult time. Take care, Jenn & Family

Our family, Wayne and I wish to express our condolences to Marcy, Marilyn and David and their children in the loss of Doreen and Clive. My sister Doreen was a quiet and loving person and she had a very positive strength about her. I will always affectionately remember her as my sister “Neen”. Clive was not only a loving husband, father and grandfather but also was a wonderful brother-in-law. I will always remember how helpful he was to our Mother. Doreen and Clive will be greatly missed by us all.

Goodbye Dear Friends, it was a pleasure to have known both of you. I was glad to have visited you both the day before your passings but I was shocked upon a revisit that you had passed away. One without the other was an impossibility I fully understand and accept that. So Dear Friends I say a tearful goodbye.

Clive was one of the best Inspectors I had the privilege of working for and with. Both he and Doreen were people to imitate for their devotion to each other and sett an example for others to follow.
