My grand daddy was the most wonderful man that I have ever known. I am happy to know I will see him again some day. He always sang to me when I was a little girl and never told me no when I begged him, "just one more song, grand daddy." I have so many memories that I will hold on to, but that one was my favorite. He was always happy and glad to see you. He never failed to make a big deal out of seeing you walk through his door. I am so glad that he is not sick anymore and he no longer has pain.

May I express my condolences to the Clark family. Don & I worked together at Ransom Middle School from 1978-85. Don possessed an easy going, laid back personality. He was good to me and for me doing my tenure at Ransom. My prayers and thoughts are with his family at this time.
