I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • I had the pleasure of helping Dr. Rohde plan some much enjoyed vacations with his wife and family, and he was always one of the most charismatic, friendly, clients I had! He adored his family as he made very clear in the conversations about them, and I will miss seeing his smiling face! Sincere condolences to his family. - Posted by: Novella Troia (Travel Agent) on: Nov 16, 2019

  • When I was 17 many moons ago my uncle Clemente came to meet me in Manhattan for lunch, he was in his 30s. I couldn’t wait to see him. The girls at my job thought he was very handsome, and he was. He looked very hippie, long hair etc., always comfortable in his ways, I liked that about him and I loved his smile. I was proud to hold his arm when we went out for lunch. I’m an educator too, I wished we could have had many conversations related. Rest in heaven forever Ñaño Clemente. - Posted by: Loretta Teran Soto (Niece) on: Nov 16, 2019

  • A PLACE WALK UP THE ROAD TO THE TOP OF THE HILL. LOOK DOWN THROUGH THE TREES TO THE BEAUTIFUL LAKE. WALK DOWN TO THE PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG OR GUILT, ONLY LOVED ONES: FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND GOOD MEMORIES. AND MAYBE A FEW BOBBERS.

  • I will never forget traveling the roads of Northern Manitoba with Clemente in the driver’s seat. He was a man who truly cared about the children we worked with. He was a man of integrity and deep compassion. He loved his family above all else! I will miss your smile and wit. Rest easy my friend, fly with the angels ❤️ - Posted by: Doreen Alexander (Colleague and Friend ) on: Nov 09, 2019

  • Lamentablemente son las situaciones más difíciles y tristes de nuestra vida las que sirven para fortalecernos. Sé que están muy desconsolados por el fallecimiento de Clemente y no tengo palabras más que de elogio para el que fue mi cuñado, todos deben sentirse orgullosos. Sólo me atrevo a decirles que lo siento muchísimo, que me hubiera gustado ir a acompañarlos. Que en paz descanse. - Posted by: Sonia Loffredo (Cuñada) on: Nov 09, 2019
