  1. We’re shocked, and saddened, by the recent news of Nancy’s passing. Although moves, age, Bompa’s/Nannie’s demise, etc. have spread our family.. I’ve still many fond memories of Thanksgiving’s, and other family get-togethers, conversations and antics.

    May I wish, from our side, our thoughts and prayers to you and yours on your loss!

  2. It’s been many years since I’ve heard any of the Clarks’ names but your mother’s obituary brought back memories from childhood.

    My most sincere sympathy to all of you on your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. Bob, Cathy, Gay & Carla – I’m so sorry to hear of Nancy’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God Bless and Keep You All.

  4. Mr. Clark, Cathy, Gay and Carla:
    I just learned that your wife and mother passed away. I am so sorry to hear of it. Growing up, Mrs. Clark was like a second mother to me. I still have a monkey book she gave me when I was monkey-crazy. I have many wonderful memories of her and the whole family.
    My sympathy to all of you.

  5. Dear Mr. Clark & family,

    I just heard about Mrs. Clark’s passing and wanted to send you all my sincere condolences. Mrs. Clark will always shine in my memory as a lovely and sharp-witted woman devoted to her family.


  6. Oh so many wonderful memories of Aunt Nancy are flooding my mind this morning after hearing about your terrible loss. My thoughts are with all of you. Love, Claire

  7. Dear Bob, Cathy, Gay and Carla,

    My mother was so very sad to read of Nancy’s death in the Syracuse papers. She still treasures the memories of all of those golf victories at Bellevue and Onondaga!
    And I still treasure that beautiful smocked dress she made for Caitlin. Maybe some lucky little girl will wear it again some day. Our heartfelt condolences to you all.
