Bob Clarke was my WHBHS guidance counselor in 1971 and I am forever grateful for his encouragement. He believed in me when I wasn't quite believing in myself. I respected and cherished him. To Pete and all Bob's loved ones my sincere condolences. He was a really good guy and always will be in my prayers, as will be all his family.

... the tree of life is growing
Where the spirit never dies
And the bright light of salvation
Shines in dark and empty skies ...
Death is not the end.

If it wasnt for him I would not be a nurse today. I did not return to school after summer and the end of Seot he knocked on my door and asked me why...he said you wanted to be a nurse so badly. I told him I had had a baby and he said ...even more reason for you to finish school. I went back and 47 years later thanks to him, i still have a profession. RIP Mr. Clark!!!!!
