Dear Clark Family,

There are never any words, that one can give, to bring comfort to you, in the passing of your wife, Mother, Aunt, Grandmother, and everything Mrs. Clark has been to the Lakewood Community.

So family, I won't agitate you with cliches and idle words. But the words I will speak, will be words in the form of a prayer, that I cry out to God, on your behalf.

Praying that the Presence of God, the Strength of God, and the Peace of God, rest upon, every family member, today, and days to come, in Jesus Name.

And remember family, you are not in this alone, because our God promises to wipe your fears away, to strengthen you, and uphold you during times like these. (Isaiah 41:10-13)

Family we got you covered in prayer in Pittsburgh/New Jersey !

Grandma Bernice, Aunt Jackie Hill, Smith and Dorsey Family

To Mr.Clark, LJ and your family, we send our sincere condolences to you all. Mrs.Clark was a nice woman and showed her support to the athletes, my son being one of them. She didn't play about serving them pasta & meatballs. Hope your memories of her bring you great comfort during this time and always.

This kind Woman & Family has always been good to me. I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs Clark since a child. She would treat me like her own grandchild whenever I would spend nights at her house with her own grandchild my cousin Lamir. May GOD continue to give this family the strength to move forward after this time of sadness. RIP Mrs Clark💗💗
