 MENLO PARK, CA
Clee meant so much to many people - they loved to be around him for his honest smile and his wonderful laugh.  His kindness and generosity were equaled by his sense of humor and willingness to enjoy life.  He was dedicated to his family and community, all while being a full-time student in business at Menlo College, where he just made honor roll in his first semester.

For those who do not know what happened, Clee suddenly came down with Strep Pnumonia while on vacation.  Lupus has taken a heavy toll on his system the past ten years,which made it harder for his body to fight off this sudden illness.

As Clee and Cynta's teacher at Eastside College Preparatory School and friend in the years that have followed, Cynta asked me to help her set up this fund up on her behalf. It is to raise money to help Cynta and the Webster Family cover Clee's medical costs and the costs of the memorial service.  Any additional funds will be put into an educational account for Julyen to use.  

The family is trying to quickly pull a service together as there are so many who want to say their goodbyes to a young man taken so suddenly and too soon.  It is a difficult time of year to ask for money, and the family deeply appreciates any help you can provide.  This fund will help with the process as the family is trying to get back home for the holidays while also preparing for this memorial.  Cynta appreciates all your positive thoughts and prayers - they have lifted her up in this incredibly difficult time.

Thank you all for your support and patience in getting updates about the memorial service. Due to the holidays and the need to follow state guidelines between Nevada and California, the logistics have required more time that usual. Should all things go as planned, the viewing will take place on Sunday, January 10 in Redwood City and the memorial service will be in the morning on Monday, January 11 in Palo Alto. Details will follow about exact times and locations.

Cynta and the whole extended family are so grateful for everyone's support. She is being sustained through this difficult time by your wonderful thoughts and remembrances of Clee.

Please feel free to message me through this site with questions and I will do my best to put you in touch with someone to answer.

With Gratitude,
Amy

Thank you so much for this amazing outpouring of support, both emotional and financial. Cynta and Julyen are uplifted by all your care, especially at time of year that is already so financially demanding.

She and Clee's family are working on details for a service in the coming week and will let people know as soon as something is confirmed. She sends love and appreciation to everyone. It is so heart warming for her to see how many smaller communities within this area that his life has enriched. She truly wishes she could take time to reach out to you each individually to let you know how much your support means at this time, and she hopes to do so at the service and in the days that follow.

I live in the Belle Haven neighborhood and read about Clee's passing in an Almanac article. I was touched by the work he has done for the youth in our neighborhood and deeply saddened to see such a wonderful human life cut so short. I wish I'd had the opportunity to have met him.
