I was lucky enough to see Clark at church.
And more lucky that Clark was the custodian at school. As a child with anxiety school was scary seeing Clark made it not so scary and I would always step out of line to give Clark a hug!!
What a blessing that was.

Thoughts and prayers for
Grandma Lu and the rest of the Howe family.

My deepest condolences to Lu and all the family. I just loved Clark. He was so inspiring to me. Every Sunday he would take me aside and share with me one of his hundreds of bible verses he knew by heart. And we would have a great conversation. He loved the Lord so much! I can’t even imagine the beautiful reunion he had when he saw Jesus face to face! Well done good and faithful servant!
Love,
Nancy

My condolences for your loss. He was a good man and I had so much respect for him as one of my "church dads." What a blessing to have had him for so long, and so difficult a loss. I will be praying for you in your process of grieving.
