Dear Dale, Nancy and all the Family Members Kids, Grandkids and Friends.

We had the pleasure of spending time with Mr Clark recently. And as Fran gave her sermon at Courthouse UMC tonight, she was so right. Mr Clark was quite a charmer. Very Kind and pleasant to be around. I think his stories were delightful and he had the absolutely very best time with you, Dale when you took him to Washington the other month.

He was a sweet man. Often when people age and become sickly, and he has been puny recently, they become a bit mean. I don’t think that Elmer had a mean bone in his body. He was certainly a sweetie and I know he enjoyed his last few years much much more because you had him in your lives. You made all the difference and as caregivers, you were wonderful, loving kind and conciderate. I was happy that I got to spend time with him. I know you will miss him, alot, and for a long

time since he shared your home. And you did make it home for him. He was happy , comfy, well fed and cared for. And in the end, what more can any of us hope for? You did good.Very good. Love, PatK
