Our sincere sympathies to all the Clark family. Kim, I believe I had Dylan and Brooke in my SS two year old class? I sang with your Mother in Chancel choir for years. She was a dear, sweet gal!
Although it’s a part of life, it’s never easy losing our parents/grandparents, especially during the Holy Season. Please know, our thoughts and prayers are with all the family. Be blessed.
