  • We are so saddened by the loss of Mr. Clark. My daughter Mary Kate LOVED when he drove her to kindergarten. Her smile brightened each day she saw he was driving. He always welcomed her onto the bus with a bright hello and a kind smile. What a great man. Thanks for sharing him with us. We pray that Heavenly Father will bless you with so much comfort and peace at this time!
    Love, Heidi, Damond and Mary Kate Petersen
