What can I say about my uncle … I just do not have the words to express how much I (we) all love you and you will be so dearly missed … you will live always in my heart. Thank you teaching me my handy-person skills and no matter how many questions I would ask you would answer them. Remember when I said when I retired I was moving to Woodville, will I never thought you would not be around, physically for that day. RIP Uncle JD ... Your work here on earth did not go un-noticed! Aunt Barbara, Gayla , Jimmy and Chris, your dad, my uncle was a great man thank you for letting him be a dad, to us all ... Love you all Carla Watt

The Clark family and my family were neighbors. In our neighborhood we were all family. My parents were older than Mr and Mrs Clark and both of the Clarks never hesitated to lend a hand to my family whenever needed. I looked up to Mr Clark with the utmost respect. He was a hard working man and has raised his family to be equally as hard working as he was. My family has always been family to me and my family.

RIP Mr Clark.
