    Alline, Tracy, and Family

    So sorry for your loss. You all are such a big part of our lives. We all grew up together. She will truly be missed!!! Even after we all grew up she was a big part of our lives. Her and David were always there if we needed them. Their home was just another place for Zach to go and get milk and cookies after school. We are praying for peace and comfort for you all. We love ya’ll so much!! Debbie and Patrick Clark
