    My condolences to Peggy and the entire Clark-Neece families. I knew Charles for over 80 years as a neighbor, school and church mate, baseball/basketball team-mate and life-long good friend. My first memories of Charles was at Shiloh Methodist Church in the Hot Rock Community where he and his family were devout members..

    Its been over 70 years but I graduated from Boonshill in 1953 and remember a Charles Clark. I did not return to the Boonshill community very often and kinda lost contact with a lot of students I knew. Sorry to hear of your loss.
