Don't Leave Us Yet

We have so enjoyed keeping this blog for many reasons. We have been impressed by the following Clark gained from close friends and family as well as strangers. As of today, we have had 14,452 absolute unique visitors, and a total of 86,258 visits. The blog's peak traffic days were transplant day, August 6, 2009 with 1,780 visits, and 2,871 visits on the day of his passing, June 11, 2010. That is incredible. What a support we (and Clark) have felt from you.

Before you stop checking in on the blog, know that we have a few posts left to share. We will post a summary of the funerals along with pictures and audio if possible, T-Shirt ordering information, a couple more news stories are in the works, and more. Of course, our posts will not be as frequent but we don't plan for this to be the end quite yet. And remember to continue posting your comments as we are going to print the blog into a book.

I cried, hard. He looked just like my little brother. I read every day. Keep checking back, every day. Wondering how his family is surviving without that face. Re-reading to make sure it really happened. I am so happy to see a new update! Thank you for sharing Clark with the world.

I check back frequently knowing that there is no end. Kristin and Rhonda you are both very, VERY strong women and I am so glad that you have the strength to provide us with all of the information you have. I did not know Clark, but by reading all of your posts you made me feel as though I had known him and your family for years. God Bless and thanks again for all of the updates.

I was in Clark's class and have been following Clark's blog from the start. I have tried to comment multiple times but didn't have the words. Although I still feel that I can't put my thoughts and feelings into words, I just want to tell you that you are all amazing. I have been amazed by the strength and love that was present in your blog entries. Although I was hoping and praying for a different outcome, Clark had an amazing journey and I thank you for telling the story. You are such a strong family and I will never forget Clark.

My husband worked with Clark at larsons for a little over 2 years, he never had one bad thing to say about him. I heard he was such an amazing person. My husbands name is John Golding ... we wanted to make it out to the funeral with Chris and Kelly Evans as well but unfrotunantly they had to work out in Idaho. We are so so sorry for your loss and we are definatly interested in buying shirts once they are for sale. Thank you for doing Clark's blog and allowing us and others to have been involved in Clark's journey. God bless

Remembering all the time and fun we had together last year. Especially at this time, on the 4th of July... That crazy old man in the accident we got into, losing your keys in the park at 1 am in the field of sprinklers, Hemi giving birth to all her babies, going to all the different fireworks, ;) I'll never forget that...

I started reading the blog after Blake proudly told me about Super Clark. From day one, the entries from Kristin and Rhonda Jo have been an inspiration. For you to share your story, all the way down to the fine details, has allowed us to feel as if we have been part of your family. The hard times you guys have been thr...ough makes me honestly feel very foolish when complaining about having a bad day or a small headache. I Hope your family will find peace in knowing how your story has touched us and how the strength and courage that Clark has shown has been life changing for all who have read your blog. May you be strong in the coming days and may your hearts be warmed by knowing you have the most AMAZING angel watching over you everyday, till you meet again.
