Memories & Candles
I was saved by the ministry of Nap Clark and sat under his teaching for 5 year while I was a student - he is responsible for me going to Bible College and Seminary.

The world has lost a soulful, generous, and kind man. I didn't stay in touch much as a grownup, but I have lots of fun and happy memories as a child, even at the camp he loved in his late teens. My sincere sympathy to all of his family. I'm sure he will be happily and fondly remembered as one fine human being. Blessings to all.

I grew up in Marigold. Nap came to our house about a week after we moved in. We started going to Marigold Baptist Church. Nap brought me to Christ and he baptized me there. Once when my parents were both sick, he and Dixie took me in for a few days to stay with them. I have never forgotten that. He was such a special person and helped so many people. God surely has a special place for him.

So sorry for your loss. I truely looked up to Nap when he was at Merigold Baptist Church. He carried us Merigold kids to a lot of places. He was always there for us. Heaven is surely blessed.

We will miss you greatly. Although it had been a long while since We spent time with you, I pray we can spend some time of reflection when we see each other once again. I know the Lord has called a Great Man Home and has big plans for you.
We love You and miss you Nap.

Dixie & Family,
Iam so sorry to hear of Nap's passing and your time of sorrow. I am praying for you all as you adjust to his absence on earth and rejoice over his presence in heaven.
Nap meant so much to Britt and Lathan during their teenage years. His was a life well-lived and I am sure that he is reaping the rewards for that life now.
Blessings to all of you.

Nap was a good friend and wonderful pastor. He meant so much to so many. Thank you for sharing so graciously your husband and father with his "flock".
