      Hi Alan and Judy,

      Mom passed away last night in Mt Pleasant also.

      Do you have Don’s contact information so he knows. There will not be a funeral but they can read the obituary on the Rassmussen Mortuary website.

      Love you,
      Lance

    He will be missed so much. We sure had a special friendship that I will always cherish. Thank you for allowing me and my family to love him. I will always remember him showing me around his house and him showing me every inch of the home and the yard. He sure was proud of all the hard work he did. What a talented man he was. I will miss hearing all his amazing stories. May you all feel peace and comfort while going through this tough time. With love, Alicia

    WE LOVED CLARK & DAINE. SHE WAS MY VISITING TEACHER FOR YEARS AND I WAS HERS. HAL & I WERE MINISTERING FRIENDS AND WERE THERE TO SEE THEM ABOUT THAT TIME AND THEY WERE BOTH CURLED UP IN BED ASLEEP–MAYBE HE WAS GONE THEN–WE DIDN’T TRY TO WAKE THEM. WE KNOW HE IS IN A GOOD PLACE AND ARE SURE DIANE WILL BE CONSOLED. WE SEND OUR LOVE TO THE FAMILY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

    I was shocked to see that both Clark and Diane died this week. After they moved here Clark looked at his pedigree chart & realized he was descended from the town’s founders. We were all in the same ward for a while so I saw them all the time. I suppose it’s great for them to be together in the next world as they were in this one.

    Clark was one of my 1st adult friends that I developed when I moved to Spring City in 2002. We had several things in common that made it easy for us to talk to each other about. I accepted his wise counsel on many matters. I enjoyed his dry sense of humor and we always managed to laugh together about many things and people we knew in common. I was always made to feel welcome by both he and Diane whenever I dropped in to shoot the breeze. He had a creative, artistic flair that I admired and enjoyed. I enjoyed his stories about his growing up days in Emery County. He told me fun stories about his working as a steel worker at Geneva Steel. I’ll miss the comfortableness that I always felt in both Clark and Diane’s presence. They were both good friends to me. Welby Scott
