Missy, I wanted to reach out to you to let you know how very sorry I am to hear this news. I did not know Clark but can only imagine what a wonderful person he was because I know you. There is no worse pain than what you are going through. It has been 22 years this November for me. Your memories will be so precious and those granddaughters will bring you so much joy. I am thinking of you and praying for you to be comforted by your friends and family. Much love. Mindy

I was very saddened to learn this morning that Clark had passed away. I had so many memories come to mind and, having been in the past comforted myself by memories of loved ones when they died, I wanted to pass some of them along.

I remember spending so much time at your house on Romain Dr. with Brooks and Clark, playing GI Joe (because they had the aircraft carrier), Nintendo (Excite Bike and others), building small campfires in the backyard, racing down the street on our bikes and over the dirt ramp in your front yard. I actually learned how to ride a bike in your driveway. My first sleepover was at your house and I even remember drinking my first canned soft drink on your back porch! And I remember good old W.D.! (And maybe Cleo?)

I remember trolling around the neighborhood and surrounding woods like we owned them, building forts in the woods, getting run off from playing in the empty pool of the Essex Park apartments, and stopping by the little store to grab some candy or a root beer. I remember the endless summer days of swim practice, ping pong, basketball and sharks and minnows!

Just this weekend I was telling my wife and kids how a couple of friends and I were suspended off of the bus for a week for “exaggerating” the bounce when we hit a bump while sitting in the back seat.

I was so sad when you moved to White Hall but I also remember getting to spend the night there. The next morning we went to St. Jude’s and for the first time I drank wine during communion. I had already been advised by the boys that it tasted horrible and we’d immediately make a dash for the water fountain, and we did just that, like we had all tasted kerosene!

Again, I hope some of these memories have brought a smile even if just for a brief moment during this difficult time. And I pray that you feel God’s comfort through these and all of your memories.

Dear Rogers Family,

I’m so incredibly sorry. My childhood is filled with so many memories of Clark that make me smile. I know he was a brother to my brother and he has left a hole in his heart, as I know he has in yours. I am praying hard for all of you.

Love, Robin

Clark was our son’s best friend beginning in elementary school & they remained friends, sharing so much through school, college & on into their adult lives. Clark seemed like a part of our family, like a 2nd son. We will miss his dropping by our house and being a part of many of our family gatherings. Our hearts are broken for Clark’s family, and especially for his three sweet girls. Rest In Peace Clark. Know that you are loved & will always be remembered by our family. To Missy, Brooks, Kelly and all the family, we are thinking of you, praying for you and stand ready to help in any way we can.
