Clarke and I started school in the first grade at Hartley and graduated together. Spent a lot of time together in those years. I had lost track after he moved from Hartley but thought of him wondering where he was, wish I had gotten to see him. Looks like he had a great life and has reached his final home he strived for. Our prayers go out to you his family during this time for comfort and peace.

I only knew Clark for about 3 years, but in that time he brought laughter and joy to me and the women who he sewed with every Friday. He was a very talented seamstress and never used a pattern. He made patterns up and they always seemed to turn into a beautiful quilt. Clark you will be missed a lot on quilting days.God Bless you. RIP
