“Your dead will live.
My corpses* will rise up.+
Awake and shout joyfully,
You residents in the dust!+
For your dew is as the dew of the morning,*
And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.* (Isaiah 26:19) This prophecy tells us that one day we will see our dead loved ones again in a new world! Please seek Jehovah God to see his promises fulfilled.....

It was my privilege to know Clark and visit with him during his time in Monroe. He was a caring man with a great sense of humor. May the Lord welcome him into his kingdom.

Dear Clark, Celeste, Raymond and family. I have fond memories of my Uncle Clark ranging from when I was a child and he would babysit for me, till later years when I would babysit for you guys for him and Aunt Ann.But one of my most favorite memories was when he and Aunt Ann came to visit my family in Cranston when our boys were just little, and they brought a cap holder for hanging your baseball caps, or whatever caps you owned, for each of the boys bedrooms that Uncle Clark had made by hand. The kids were thrilled and loved them! It was a very special gesture, and to this day my sons now 43 & 40 still bring it up whenever Uncle Clark is mentioned. He will be missed, and our love and prayers go out to my cousins and their families during this sad time. Love cousins Carol and George Lutz and family
