Clark was always like a second mother to me while I was growing up in the Olivet Church family. I still sleep with one of her quilts every night. I will miss you so. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the Stanfield Family on the passing of their matriarch. I feel a close friendship with Tommy and Terry and their families. The entire Stanfield Family are in my thoughts and prayers. Even though she was 100 years old, it is still hard to say goodbye to "Mom". Love you all.
GODSPEED, CLARK STANFIELD. MAY GOD BLESS THE ENTIRE STANFIELD FAMILY.
