Memories Timeline


  1. When I first started getting to know the Clark family, your Mom was often at their gatherings. What a pleasure to be around her! She was warm and friendly, and loved to have a good time. I remember most her smile and watching her polka dance with Jim at Jeanette’s wedding. Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to you and we will keep all of you in prayer. Love, Dan and Kathy
