    Rev Joseph L Clark Jr says:
    God created an Angel when he created you. He placed inside of you love and a careness for people. To Breezy which is what we called you, nothing will ever cause us to forget your smile and we thank God for how you helped mom during the times she was very ill. You would always be there for her and Candy and I and the entire Clark thank you for being there for us. As you take your rest to wait for our redeemer to come sleep in peace because you have your place in the kingdom of God. We love you Breezy!

    Aunt Kathy, you always made me feel welcome and when you were around, laughs weren't far behind. Tell Uncle Joe I said "Hi" and look in on us every so once in a while. You will be missed. Love, Chip.
