Symone, Heartfelt condolences on your father's passing. Though I never met him, your stories made me feel his presence. May Psalm 34:18 offer comfort: "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted." In this sorrowful time, know you're in my thoughts and prayers. With sympathy, Tracy Davis-Raphael

My upmost Condolences to The McClain Family for their lost of a Wonderful man, person, dad, and husband! His Big Personality and Wisdom will truly be missed! I personally looked at Mr McClain as a powerful father figure during my teen years! His work ethic and craftsmanship was second to none! And up until this day, I look back, and know without a doubt, he was who taught me the meaning of “work before pleasure”! God Rest His Sou!

What an amazing man and Uncle. His unmistakable voice and laugh, his pure genius in all things tech and gadgets. Will never forget him and my dad putting up that gigantic satellite in our backyard (before the days of DirecTV) so we could watch TV from around the world. What a remarkable man - he will be sorely missed. Love you Aunt Thina, Symone and Craig - keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, -Jamie
