So sorry for your loss...It's so tragic that he was failed by politics...RIP Clark! Hope he's running around up there with his dad and of course he must be clean shaven! :O)

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

Rhonda, Kristin, Ryan & family, I am so sorry for your loss. Clark fought a good fight with all of you by his side. Rhonda, your strength has always inspired me and this is yet another testament of your grace & beauty as not only a mother but as a woman. Kristin, you have truly inspired so many for your devotion and love this past year to the care of your Superman. Ryan, I cannot find the words. Friend, you have held a special place in my heart for many years. Continue to take care of each other as Jim & Clark continue to take care of each of you.

So sorry for you loss. He was such a great guy and was loved by so many. He will forever be watching over your family. RIP Clark.

Again, there are not words to bring you comfort in your sorrow. My prayers tonight are for you all and for the family whose lost loved one allowed us this year to pour our love and admiration onto Clark. He takes a piece of all our hearts along with him. While our eyes overflow with tears of anguish, Clark's are beholding sights that cause his to overflow with joy. Even knowing the truth of that, the sense of loss is unbearable.

As our yard sign said in August, "Clark, we are praying for you."

With trembling hearts that break for our precious neighbors,
the Schuchards

Kimble family,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss tonight. I've been following Clark's blog, and my heart goes out to each of you. I never had the chance to meet Clark but taught Huxley in 7th grade and know Clark had to have the same great personality as his younger brother. Clark will be greatly missed--his courage and zest for life will not be forgotten. I know the pain of losing a sibling and will be praying for you all...

Hugs from SD,

Dear Kimbles,

He did fight a good fight and he WON in the eyes of God!!

I believe God said; "Well done good and faithful servant, Welcome home!!"

By our faith in God, we can be at peace with a loved ones passing...But to lose their earthly presence hurts us...So in that time of sorrow we hold each other up by our prayers...

Know of my prayers and those of my Benedictine Sisters at Mother of God Monastery.

In God's peace-S. Kim Engelhart

Dear Clark Family-
To say I'm sorry for your loss just doesn't seem enough. I'm praying for your continued strength. He was taken much to soon and he will be missed be many.

Alex said...

Thank you so much Kristin and Rhonda for keeping up this blog so that those of us who are thousands of miles away could commiserate with you.

Last Sunday I bore my testimony at church and was feeling an overwhelming gratitude for Heavenly Father and for the plan of salvation. I'm grateful for the life that Clark lived and the time that we could spend together. May the Lord comfort you and all of us at this time as we will no longer have Clark with us in this life.

If I may, I'd like to share a scripture and a thought that are especially helpful to me:

"Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection-- behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men. as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life."

I remember when I came up to Watertown after Jim had passed away, when I was talking to Clark, he said, "Now I've got two fathers in heaven." At his young age he understood a beautiful truth. I pray that he is comforted with his reunion with his fathers in heaven.

And I pray especially for you Rhonda and for your family. I love you all very much and am mourning with you.

Superman turned into Super Angel,What a fine young man full of God's love, and the love of family. Many times throughout the early years I say Clark come into the Boys & Girls Club to pick up his younger brothers and I always thought that they had a great role model in him. My prayers are with all of you and if there is anything I can help do on this end please let me know.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but so happy that Clark is at peace. I knew him from the singles' ward here in Lehi. I visited him a few times. I was so impressed with his positive attitude.

May you have peace at this time.

Clark, You changed my life in so many ways. You were a great no AMAZING guy. I wish I could have said one final good-bye to you. I am going to miss your IM's. This summer when I go to Alaska I am going for you!! You better believe there is going to be a rock with your name on it at the Penisula where we all fish!! R.I....P. Clark "SuperClark" Kimble. Imma miss you!! ♥

makinzy said...

So many wonderful thoughts and statements made by so many. Many of whom only knew Clark thru your incredible blog. I am one of those and I share the sentiments of all the above.

Clark has been a very inspirational presence in the lives of all who "knew" him, in life or in blog. He will be missed - we all had high hopes he'd recoup and be able to tell us he was back on his feet and there would be no more need for the blog!! Literally thousands all over this country were praying for this end.

Is it any wonder that Clark was the person he was, with such a supportive, loving family?? Your family is to be envied. How I wish I had what Clark has in you. He's now happy and pain free, how can we even think to wish him back, when complete recovery wasn't to be. God knows best. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May the next days, months and years bring you peace.

Douglas Lai said...

Words cannot completely express our sympathies. Super Clark will always be remembered by Utah Liver Families and many others.
How grateful the Gospel is to know that he is no longer suffering, and is continuing his work.
May the Lord bless your family through this trial and continue to make them strong, as Clark was.

I read something most tragic tonight,
A super hero lost his fight.
He fought hard and for so long,
And in the end, he did not stand alone.
He had his family,
And a nationwide of friends.
Through out the day,
They were praying and holding hands.
This hero though did not succumb to defeat,
He stands by our lord,
Empowered and sleek.
This hero is our Clark.
Strong and true.
His journey was amazing and inspiring not just for a few.
He touched so many hearts that this night the tears could fill a river.
To think this all started because of a liver.
Clark you are my hero,
As you are to so many.
So to our Super Clark Kimble,
I bid you farewell,
And unending love.

Kelli said...

What an unforgettable and inspiring hero. Rest peacefully, Clark. Thinking and praying for your family. God Bless.


Kathy said...

I hadn't heard of Clark until tonight when my niece posted something on Facebook and I googled his name. It hurts my heart to hear of the difficulty that Clark, and you as his family, have experienced. It seems to me that he had a great mission here on earth to inspire people to hold on, better their lives, love those closest to them and never forget the power we have within to make a difference. My life will now forever be changed because of Clark. I will love more, give more and spend more time doing the things I know God would have me do because of someone I discovered only after they had gone on to a greater place. Clark has blessed so many people and enriched the life of many he never even met. May peace be with you as Clark's family knowing the fight he fought was not in vain, it reminded so many what is truly important in this mortal life. Thank you and God bless.

Andrea said...

I don't know if you knew this before but...

The Monument

Before He sent His children to earth
Gave each of them
A very carefully selected package
Of problems.

He promised, smiling,
Are yours alone. No one
Else may have the blessings
These problems will bring you.

And only you
Have the special talents and abilities
That will be needed
To make these problems
Your servants.

Now go down to your birth
And to your forgetfulness. Know that
I love you beyond measure.
These problems that I give you
Are a symbol of that love.

The monument you make of your life
With the help of your problems
Will be a symbol of your
Love for me,
Your Father

Blaine M. Yorgason

Thinking of your family at this sad time. All of you must love your Father very much to have done all that you have. Rest peacefully Clark.

I am saddened that I must be very patient, and wait until my life ends to be able to see Clark again, but I am relieved that his suffering has ceased. His journey has deeply affected my life with humility and perspective, leading me to focus on what really matters. I am thankful for the Kimble/Yoder family and for their strength and courage to fight this battle united as one, and to allow us to fight alongside them with Clark. Because of the Atonement, and Christ's resurrection, Clark will eventually be restored into his beautiful unblemished body. It gives me great peace to know that Clark was baptized (by his father Jim?,) and that Clark believed and understood the great plan of salvation, and that Christ is our Savior. Now he is back home. Great Peace.

My love to you at peace Clark. Rhonda and family, I admire your strength and love. God Bless you all.

The picture is so touching. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time. I am saddened for your loss but am so grateful that he has returned home and will be made whole again. He is smiling down on us finally pain free! Thank you for your inspiration Clark! Thank you for never giving up and for fighting until the end, which is really the begining for you. I wish I could have witnessed the reunion. You truly are a a faithful servent. Thank you.

Dear Kimble family,
we are very sorry to hear about Clark. He was a great young man. He will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

To the Kimbles, though Clark has surrendered his battered and weary earthly body it allowed his strong, faithful and loving spirit to be freed to go at the speed of a superhero to be with our heavenly father and his earthly father. He will always be with you and be watching over you as only Super Clark can do.

We may be seperated by a geographical distance, I hold you all in a tight loving embrace in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Also in my heart will be a special place for Clark where he will remain and be honored from now on.

I met Clark last year when he came to Las Vegas and worked a few months for my husband doing cellular work. The thoughts that come to my mind is when he pulled up in his fancy car and out jumped the loves of his life, his dogs!! He said these dogs are here with me to live I hope that's ok!! He loved those dogs! Clark's blog has really put life into perspective for me. I have learned that whatever adversity comes along we must all never give up HOPE! Without hope we have nothing! Clark we will all see you again someday. Until that time comes we will be down here fighting the big fight and never losing hope! RIP Clark

I am so sorry for your family. What a terrible loss, but I am glad he is not suffering any more. What he endured really did make him a hero and I'm so sad that he didn't get a happy ending out of it.

ebischke said...

Super Clark, what a fitting name. I wish I had half of the will power and determination Clark displayed through this whole process. He always maintained the attitude that everything was going to be alright. Well, I think everything is finally alright, and God's plan for Clark is being carried out, just as God has intended. Clark has left his pain and his struggles, and has returned home. I can imagine the excitement that both he and his father Jim had during their reunion. Clark battled and fought and did everything he could to conquer the illness he was faced with. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. I will miss Clark dearly, but I will be forever blessed with all of the memories of the experiences we shared together, and the honor I feel in having known him. I have been friends with Clark for just over 13 years. He and I went to high school together, and worked together at Williams Carpet, Premier Bankcard, and Larson Tower Specialists. We spent many days together playing football, playing video games, and attending church activities. I have always had the utmost respect for Clark. He always had such a big heart, and was always there for you when you needed him. I wish my best to the Kimble Family, and hope they know that everything will be alright. Clark, I love you and miss you. I look forward to seeing you again.

Dearest Rhonda and Kristin:

No two women loved more deeply and selflessly than you two loved Clark. It was due to the tender mercies of God that you both were able to be with him at his passing. My heart is overflowing with sympathy and love for you and your entire family.

It has been gently raining for hours here in Sioux Falls. I think of the raindrops as tears from Heaven: tears of sympathy for our loss, yet tears of joy shed by those loving family members who have welcomed Clark Home.

I am here to comfort and serve in any way that I can.

With Love, Appreciation, and Deepest Sympathy,

I have known this family for almost twenty years and have always felt their strong family bond.

I feel privileged to have been able to meet Clark. Him and his family were a great inspiration to my family. His mom taught me to have faith when I was I going thru a hard time in my life. It’s never easy when you have a sick child. We were in the hospital the same time Clark was. My son was a little over 2 years old and needed a Liver Transplant. We were having a rough time after his transplant with complications. That is when we came across Clark’s blog. And I seen how much this super hero had been thru and I knew that we would make it thru this. Rhonda’s faith and strength and love for her child inspired me to be strong and have faith that everything would be fine. I have been lucky enough to be able to visit with Clark and Kristin in her home and also enjoy lunch with Rhonda at the hospital. Clark will greatly be missed. He has touched so many lives. He truly is a super hero. My prayers are with you all as you go thru the next trials of your life. Just know that Clark is with his Heavenly Father and is finally pain free and at peace. He fought a great fight. But our Father in heaven has a greater purpose for him.

Dearest Rhonda, Kristin, family & friends,
We all know God has a plan for all of us. This is part of God's Almighty plan. We may not like it but we have to deal with it. It has been 30 years since my daughter went to be with the Lord. I still don't like it. It is so very hard on the loved ones left behind. WE are so sorry that "Super Clark" will be not be with us on earth but he will be in our hearts, forever. I know he will be celebrating with his loved ones in heaven as we are celebrating all he touched on earth. God will send us rainbows that we may remember forever what a "Super Clark he was.
Hugs, Love & Blessings,

I am listening to right now and its reminding me of the times that i would drive to watertown to pick you up then turn around and go to ACME dance club. We would just stand in the corner to scared to dance and be so tired on the drive home we would have to put our heads out the window. I love you!

In the time I knew Clark I had the great opportunity of meeting a few members of the amazing Kimble family. I am sad I never got to meet the rest of you in person, but I feel I have gotten to know you through this blog and the stories Clark shared with me. I remember the first day I met Clark in August of 2006 he spoke of his family. Right then I knew family was very important to him. The time I spent with Clark in the following years he never stopped speaking highly of his family and his moms cooking. I hope Clark knew how much I loved and cared for him. I want to thank you for this blog. It truly has helped me grow as a person as well as being able to follow Clark and your family on his long journey. So a new journey has begun for Clark and I know he will be just as great there as he was here. May the Lord be with you....stay strong. He will be forever missed by all whom he crossed paths with!

With Love,

Dear Kimble Family,
I would first like to say how sorry I am for your loss of such a wonderful son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend. May God grant you the strength and courage to find peace with Clark's passing. He was a great guy, and will truly be missed by many. What an inspiration he was...and loved by SO many. What a lucky man he was to have such a great, supportive, loving, and close family by his side this entire time. I'm sure he wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Rhonda, you, yourself are an inspiration. What a wonderful mother you are. Kristin, you are also an inspiration, nobody could ever wish for a better sister than you. May you all find happiness in the memories of Clark. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

God Bless,

I was at the church Friday when I recieved the news and I walked into the santcuary to pray and these song lyrics were sitting there for me to read:
"My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
......Unending love, Amazing grace."

I know that Clark's chains of suffering are now gone.....and though I could never pretend to understand God's reasons for taking away someone so special from his family and friends, I do know that his love for Clark superceeds our own and we must believe in his never ceasing wisdom and love for all his children.

You are all in my prayers and I know your strength and faith will pull you through these difficult days ahead.

Clark has touched so many people this last year, I have friends who have never met him that have been following his blogs and have told me how they have grieved for all of you the past few days. His courage and unwavering faith is an example to all of us and I thank you all for allowing us to be a part of your journey this last year.

Love you guys and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

To the family of "Super Clark" my thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Clark briefly and knew immediately that he was a special individual. I'm thankful for that brief moment and will cherish it for the rest of my life. He has strengthen my testimony of the gospel. Gone, but not forgotten, he lives on in our hearts forever.

I am deeply saddened that Clark has left this earth and left his wonderful family behind. But, I know he is in a better place without pain.

He has been an inspiration in my life the short time I have known about him. I haven't met Clark personally but was in his singles ward for a short period. I will always remember the love I felt from people in that ward for him.

Watching Clark fight for his life has given me a realization that I take my life for granted sometimes. He has also made me realize that I can be selfish and go through life with blinders on. Even if I don't know someone or if their problems don't directly affect me, it doesn't mean I can't try and help make their life better.

Clark seemed like a wonderful kid and I am sorry to see him go. He must have a lot of work to do in Heaven if he left us so soon. I'm sure he'll do wonders up there. RIP Clark. Your family is in my heart and prayers. Thank you for making a difference in my life.

Am so sorry for your loss. Although I never met Clark or his amazing family, I have been following this blog for a long time and I know that his story has truely touched my life. Am a nurse at the University of Utah and I can't tell you how much this blog has helped to see the whole picture of what it like for patients and their families to go through such a medical battle. Sometimes you just get caught up in your job and lose that human side to things. So I appreciate you sharing your story to all of us! I will never forget Clark or your family.

I am so sorry to hear about Clark's passing. As one of the nurses in the ICU who cared for Clark last year after his liver transplant, I have been following this blog ever since. He went through so much when he was in my ICU and I can see how much he has gone through since then. I know how strong he was to have been able to make it through this past year, and how strong all of you are for helping him. You all did a wonderful job of sharing his story so he could be an inspiration to many. I hope that he has found peace and you can all be of comfort to each other during this difficult time.
