Saw Al’s obituary yesterday. The memories that flashed through my mind were that of a loving, warm, Godly man. Often I think who have I known in this life who has reflected Jesus in their life and Pastor Al Clark is one who comes to mind. I thank God  for allowing my life path to intersect with Al’s for a short time at Davisville Church. His devotion to our Lord has impacted my life. My prayer is that I might receive a portion of the  anointing that was on his life and that I might reflect our Savior as he did. May God’s peace be with you during this separation from Al, but may the knowledge of a certain reunion bring you joy. 
In His Love,
Carson Meeder.

To Aunt Dot and all who loved him, our heartfelt condolences.  We celebrate his homecoming and you are all in our thoughts and prayers, as always.
The Ruffins
