Clarence's Corner
By Clarence Haynes
 
"When Life hands Clarence Haynes lemons, the 91-year-old slogan-quoting, card-carrying diabetic "Amigo" makes sugar-free lemonade.

"After nearly dying upon diagnosis with diabetes in 1977--with an astronomical glucose level of 880--while on a trip to Boston, Clarence has since devoted the last 32 years of his life to diabetes education."
 
Clarence Haynes died last night at the age of 93. Clarence, we will miss you!
