    Mr. Clark….It saddens my heart that you have passed….You were such a great man with values anyone would be proud to have….I know that you are now reunited with Terry, someone who was taken all too soon….I know you two have much to talk about…..To Bill and the rest of the family, cherish the memories as they are all we have after our loved ones are gone….Know that Ellis is now with Terry and they will watch over all of you until the time comes one day for you to once again be united as a family….

    Dear Mrs. Clark, Bill, and family: Your husband, father and grandfather was such a wonderful person. I can remember my dad and Ellis sitting and talking about farming and cattle ranching so many times. I was always so excited when I could ride with my dad out to Ellis and Hazel’s house, crossing over the railroad tracks and sitting in their driveway and visiting. Although you all probably thought different, I thought a train crossing in front of my house was the coolest thing ever. I can remember on many occasions when Ellis would stop by the house and drop off fresh sweet corn or other vegetables on the front porch for us to enjoy. Ellis and Hazel were such good friends to my parents and they treasured your friendship deeply. I can only imagine the stories that they are telling each other right now. Love you guys and praying for your peace. Ben and Cheryl Posey
