This page is dedicated in honor of my mother Rosalie A. Clark. My mother is a plank owner in the Randys Kicking Cancer Fund. She was very instrumental in raising money for the fund. As you can see from her picture mom was nurse. She helped thousands throughout her life through her profession. Mom left us on October 8, 2007. She led a valiant fight against breast cancer which she beat and was survivor. She was later diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer for which there is no cure. She amazed everyone all her doctors with her will to live. She inspired me greatly with the way she lived her life. Mom, suffered greatly during her battle she rarely if ever complained. Her will to survive was simply amazing. She left us to go serve in heaven. No doubt she is watching over us daily.
Mom, you are missed and I will never forget the years of love and nuturing you shared with us all!
Rosalie A. Clark
