This site is dedicated to Clarence Bosket.

To Clarence: What a roller coaster ride we had—but we did it together for 38 years. I will be the one to say that it wasn’t always easy. There were so many ups and downs. I guess that is what life is all about. We certainly lived through every crisis, every adventure and every miracle. You always had such a positive attitude. You would always tell me that things would work out. You told me if they would just give me a new liver, you had so much left to do in life. When you found out that the transplant was not going to happen, you just told me “ I set a goal to get a new liver, but that was not possible, so now I have set a new goal to live longer than what they think I can” We gave it a good shot and we took it just one day at a time. You never were that guy who showed much emotion but I can remember the tears that you tried to hide at Tyler’s death and the pride you had when you would tell people about your grandsons’ achievements. They meant the world to you. Most of all I remember our journey through this horrible disease. We had our love but the love we found during this crisis was amazing. I will never forget your hand on my shoulder and when you would take my hand and try to calm me when we were told that there was no more hope. You asked me to just let you go and no heroic measures but just to hold your hand until you were gone. I will always hold your hand forever.

I found this poem which I read to you one day and you told me to make sure I lived by it.

Miss me but let me go.
I have come to the end of the road,
Miss me a little but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me but let me go.
Love never ends, Love bears all things
Believes all things, Hopes all things, endures all things
Love never ends.
I am at peace, my soul is at rest.
There is no need for tears
For with your love, I was so blessed.

I love you, Clarence, always Love from Mary Ann

Clarence enjoyed working with people. He owned several small businesses and always found time to get to know the people he worked with. They became his friends. When Clarence moved to Florida, he enjoyed his friends at Gates Convenience Store in Mandarin where he was employed. He had the “gift of gab”! Clarence has never met a person that would not become his friend!

You were my birth father and I really did not know you much. I was adopted when I was a teen by my mom and her husband. I know you had a few businesses in Norwich and 1 at the plaza. Just sad I was never able to get in touch with you or get to know you better... RIP... My prayers go out to your family...
