Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Molly. The first big loss of my life was my Dad, PFC William Clayton Clark
I would like to thank everyone that has stopped by my Dads, Uncle Lloyds, Larrys, and Nickels memorials. I have added Father Artim, who was our Priest in Anchorage, and Bob Phelps whose wonderful family I got to know in So. California, while I was living there the last 3 years of his life. He was a Firefighter and a Hero that volunteered during the L.A. riots.

Each time I log on to Find A Grave, and see a new post, my grief load is lightened, knowing that someone thought about these wonderful souls. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful memories of your loved ones. I never tire reading all of the interesting ways people lived their lives and continue to do so through their stories.
What trying times we have to go through during our journey in this life. As I visit so many memorials and read of the lives that were led, I am so inspired.
On the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks, I was deeply saddened by all of the stories and video recaps. Then a thought out of no where came into my head. What about the troops that are overseas and fighting for freedom now. I googled in "adopt a soldier". To my amazement there are so many reputable sites that have literally thousands of requests for letters from home. So I have adopted a soldier and sent out my first letter. I did this in honor of all those that gave it all for our freedom. It only took me a few short moments from my day to write "my" soldier a letter. I am going to contact Hallmark though and request that they start a line of cards especially for our troops that fight everyday and go unappreciated until it is too late. Let's celebrate their lives, and deeds, while they are still with us and let one in a million know that you care.


UPDATE 6-29-2011
Today would have been my Dad's 95th Birthday. Though Mom and I are a few states away now, we celebrated the day, on the phone. The gals in the office, the nurses, the aids, everybody celebrated My Moms' Husbands Birthday. It's a great place where she is and my Mom laughed that genuine Texan laugh! Mom grew up in Quitman Texas and she remembers that the little "Spacek girl" that came around for chocolate chip cookies. I'm assuming that was Sissy's Mom from Quitman TX. I also sent videos off of YouTube of Sheb, my Dad's best friend. We made the best of the day and both laughed at the wonderful memories of living in Alaska.



Mom is still doing well considering her Azlheimers. I have her room filled with books since she is an avid reader. She replied to me, "Honey, all I need is one book. By the time I finish it, I've forgotten what I've read." Through all that she has endured she still has her sense of humor!

God bless you and keep you in His Embrace during this very difficult time. My prayers and thoughts are with you and if we were closer my arms would be around you.

Prayers for your husband and your mother but especially for you. My grandmother had several strokes and my best friend has Alzheimers. I have an idea of what you are facing. I wish there was more I could do to help. Nancy

Hi Molly,
I always seem to get to a page right after Rosie K. I see you lost your mother. I don't know when this happened, but I'm sorry to hear it. Also, will be thinking of your husband. I pray that he will get better although it doesn't sound good. One never knows what God has planned. Take care.

RE: Awful year
Hi Molly, I was worried when you hadn't posted anything for so long. Really thought I wouldn't hear from you again. I was so excited to see you left me a message, and then I read it.

I am sorry about your Mom, I figured she had passed. That is so terrible about your husband, I don't even know what to say. You never expect something like this to happen. I can't imagine how you are coping. We will all pray for Buck and for you. Please keep me updated on how he is doing. Hugs, Rosie

Marine Corps
I saw your father's memorial on the rotating memorials on find A Grave. My Father's also shows up ever so often.
After reading your interest, it would help if you could tell me what division and unit in the Marine Corps your Father served. Many of that generation are now gone, my father in 2003, but a few are still around. Many of the Divisions have reunion groups. My father was in the 4th Marine Division. I have a lot of his books, magazines and papers. they use to have a web site but the administrator has now died.
Through some of my contacts, if I knew his division and unit, I might be able to tell who the friend in the picture is.
I share your sorrows. My father was seriously wounded in the initial attack on Iwo Jima.

p.s. There is a link on my page to my father's memorial.

Your Dads Memorial
Sorry for the two empty posts. Havn't typed for a good while. I just wanted to say how touching your memorial to your dad is. I look at find a grave often, and have yet to be as touched by a childs memorial for their father yet. I'm sorry that it was so painful a loss for you, but obviously the good memeories are what life is all about. You will see him again, though the wait sometimes seems unbearable. Keep his memories alive, and he will never be far away.
