    I will never forget how hard the Clark family’s Mothe, Ada, worked to provide for everyone. From her Alvin learned the art of being a hardworking, dependable, loving and caring person he was. With birthdays 6 days apart, we were the youngest in our class of 1956, with me being second. RIP, my friend, Your time spent here was well served and appreciated by many.
