Loss of PNHP leader Clarence Givens

Clarence Givens – gentleman, scholar, Air Force Veteran, world traveler, community volunteer, handsome cowboy, and much, much more – passed away Wednesday, August 23, 2017.  Words cannot express how much his friendship and leadership will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Karolyn and their family.

Ann Radar created a wonderful tribute to Clarence and his efforts in fighting for this community on the PNHP Facebook page:

Sometimes people come into your life for a moment, a day, or a lifetime. It matters not the time they spent with you but how they impacted your life in that time.
