To Carly & Nancy and the rest of the family, speaking as his "personal" respiratory therapist, it was without a doubt such a pleasure getting to know Clark. I enjoyed many wonderful conversations with him that I will forever remember. Sometimes there are a few patients that touch our hearts, he definitely touched mine and will be greatly missed. My deep condolences. Theresa

Bonnie's and my heart go out to Nancy, Bill and Carley. Clark was a life long, very close friend. He was a gentle giant. Never a mean word was ever uttered from his mouth. I will miss him until the end of my days.

My memories of Clark go back to High School days and the years we spent as fellow musicians and friends in a local rock band...he was a great musician, always in good humor, full of life and gregarious in nature. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

To Carly and Nancy, please accept Annie and my heartfelt sympathy. Clark loved his family, and you took such outstanding care of him. What a nice man! (As he got sicker, I think he saw you as two angels. I would have). Our thoughts are with you both during this terribly difficult time. Please let me know if there is anything I can do that might be helpful.

We are so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of the lake and boating with your family. We've lost touch all these years, but when I saw Clark's picture, I immediately remembered his smile. My parents Dick and Penny send their thoughts too. God Bless.
