I went to Lakeside high with Ryan. We graduated the same year and I was friends with his twin Bryan. he was by far one of the nicest people you could meet. He always had a smile on his face and could make anyone laugh! My heart lies with his mom, dad, and twin Bryan. Today on the 5year anniversary while they relive that horrible day!

My thoughts and prayers are with the Clark Family. In the oldest book there is we find a true hope for the future to see out loved ones that have died. It is located in the last pages of this book. It says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

My name is Audrey Bowen. I am a 54 year old Freshman in East field Junior College located in Mesquite Texas. I'm doing a argumentative paper for my English class. Just recently Texas passed a law allowing college students that have a gun liscense to carry it concealed on college campuses in TX. I don't agree. I'm here because I was doing research as to students killed by guns on campus. It has been a while I know but for the family it was just yesterday. His smile speaks. May God continue to provide you with a peace that surpasses all understanding. Perfect Peace!

Stack -

You have not yet met me in person, but my daughter did know you in your time on this earth. As you know, she wept bitter tears for many days. I know that every time she remembers you (you know how often that is!) ... she grieves.

Each life taken that day was a great loss ... and each life taken affected so many others that loved you all ... but in some ways, your scholastic and service record, your work ethic and your smile ... seems to set you apart. Maybe it just seems that way because I know someone that loved you ...

It's really hard for us to get our head's around what happened that 33rd person that died that day. It seems as if he were your opposite ... friendless, alone, filled with rage.

Somehow, I can't help but wonder ... if he'd know *you* ... if this might not have happened.

Anwyay, all I wanted to say is this: Thanks for being such a great friend to my daughter, Stack. I do look forward to meeting you someday.
April 15, 2010
Although it has been 3 years it seems like yesterday. RIP Stack.

Ryan,
Love to you in Heaven. The world has been less bright this past year since you left us. Your short but full life has so inspired me. I use your exemplary life as a role model for my own two sons. It is my regret that our paths never crossed while you walked among us. Your spirit will always be as bright as your smile.
Peace and comfort to your family.
April 16, 2008
I remember Ryan "Stack" Clark on the one year anniversary of his tragic death at the Virginia Tech massacre. I didn't have the privilege of knowing him. But I honor him for his compassion and kindness and hope we can perpetuate his legacy by incorporating kindness and compassion to our own lives. I send out my deepest condolences to his family on this heart-breaking anniversary. Your precious son and brother may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. He lives on in all our hearts. Our hearts go out to you on this solemn and tragic anniversary.
April 15, 2008
Beautiful boy, sleep well in the arms of G_d.

Ryan
I don't know you, but your legacy will live on because of your unselfish way of giving 100% of yourself to help others. Your smile is infectious and you will never be forgotten. Rest now in the arms of THE ALMIGHTY GOD.
February 14, 2008
Ryan,
It's been almost 10 months now since you were so tragically taken from us and I still remember it as if it was yesterday. That was one of the worst phone calls I've ever received in my life. I think about you everyday and still miss you a lot. Fortunately, there are more smiles now than tears, but we will never forget you. You are my friend and I love you.

Dear Family and Friends of Ryan,

Even though I did not personally know Ryan I have read from many who did and it has left me with a deep sadness in my heart for the loss of one whose spirit brought so much love and joy into the lives of so many. His loving heart shall not be forgotten for no being nor even death itself can still the power of love once set in motion, rather it endless grows with a strength which bears witness to the truth that in the end love conquers all. Now Ryan is counted among the Saints of Heaven where pain is no more and love and happiness and the Lord are forever his. May God's grace continue to sustain all who knew Ryan and His blessings carry you to each new day with continued hope and promise and healing in your hearts.

June 05, 2007
My son, Ryan, graduated to heaven in 1995. Take comfort in knowing that you and I will see our "Ryans" again. You will continually be in my prayers.

Some people have a beauty that transcends, something in them that draws others in, it's their personality shining through them. These people are filled with a joy that is contagious and makes everyone around them smile. I didn't know Ryan Clark, but I know that he had this quality. I know this because every time I see his picture I stare at it, wishing I could talk to him, even for a minute. Something in him, even though he is gone, makes me smile through my tears, because I know he was the kind of person who could brighten every day. I have read the responses of people who knew Ryan and not one of them neglects to mention his amazing spirit. I see in Ryan a genuine man, one who would have made a wonderful father and husband. I am deeply saddened that this man was taken from the world, but I believe he can continue to inspire others even though he is gone now. My deepest condolences to the family of such a fine young man.

I did not know Ryan, but I live in Virginia and have always been a Tech fan. From what I have heard about Ryan, this was very promising life cut way too short. What an unspeakable tragedy.
May 16, 2007
I didn't know of Ryan at all but after reading of his accomplishments, it appeared that he was destined for great things. Out of all the good he accomplished here on Earth, he will surely work wonders as an angel in Heaven. God Bless.
May 16, 2007
Rest In Peace!

Your son was such a gift and from all I have read, it seems he was on the road to such a wonderful future. We will never know why God decided that Ryan would be taken that day but I do hope that your memories and the love you shared help sustain you in this unbearable time. You should be very proud of your son. He will always be remembered as the hero he truly was. God Bless you all.

i am the mom of two college students, lucky for me they are living at home and i still have them under my roof for a short time longer.
i cannot express to you the heartbreak i feel for your family. it is totally unspeakable. the pain of the "what ifs" i look at your sons picture and KNOW this child had a heart of gold, he did his "r a" job far better than he could have ever been compensated. he was the big brother to all those kids on the floor,. WHAT BRAVERY HE HAD, ryan heard the noise and came to protect, now he is with god, for god loves the children and yes ryan is a child of god.
thank you for giving this world a fine child, one who can be used as a role model. thank you for raising a fine young man.
may the good lord bless you and comfort you all.
May 06, 2007
To Ryan's family and friends,
Our heavenly father Jehovah (Ps. 83:18) promises at Isaiah 41:10 - "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness". May you grasp hold of his hand and allow him to guide you through the coming days, weeks, months and years.
You may gain comfort from these additional scriptures:
Isaiah 25:8 - "He will actually swallow up death forever."
Revelation 21:4 - "and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
I share these thoughts because they have comforted me in the loss of my husband on 9/11.
May 04, 2007
To the Clark family, just know that God is still in control. One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou are with me; thy rod & thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness & mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; & I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. God Bless!!
May 04, 2007
WHAT A GREAT LOSS, MAY GOD BLESS HIS FAMILY. I KNOW THE FEELING OF LOSING A CHILD, I THINK MY LITTLE TANAI IMANI WILL LOVE HAVING SUCH A WONDERFUL YOUNG MAN TO GUIDE HER IN HEAVEN OR VISA VERSA. I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS.
May 04, 2007
You have done so much in such a short period of time. All your work was done in love....Well done..God's good and faithful servant.
May 04, 2007
Sincere sympathy and kind thoughts are with you at this time.Thinking of you in your sorrow.
May 03, 2007
To my loving family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

To the Family of Ryan Clark: In the midst of a senseless tragedy, we continue to search for answers to this hideous crime and yet there seems to be none. Ryan, in such a short time lived a full and vibrant life and was a person that others looked up to. A life can be taken away so quickly and leave us feeling so empty, but the one thing that can't be snatched from us are the memories that you shared as a family. May God comfort you as you continue to mourn the loss of your loved one.
May 01, 2007
To the family of Ryan Clark, I offer my condolences to you. Of course I did not know this young man but from just hearing about him and what happened, my heart goes out to you. I hope that you can find peace. I'm sure you will because with God all things are possible. Just remember the battle is not yours, nor was it Ryan's, it is the Lord's.
May 01, 2007
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
April 30, 2007
Ryan, I know you would be surprised, but pleased, by how many people you have touched - not by your death, but by your short life packed with so much compassion, intelligence and FUN! You were one of those rare individuals who understood the importance of play in life. You will continue to influence others even in death. I am so fortunate to have have had the pleasure and privilege of spending 2 weeks with you each summer at Camp Big Heart. God Bless.
April 30, 2007
I did not know you but you changed my life. I feel your soul . You have changed so meany lives. Thank your parents for sharing you. I am so happy that they shared your spirit with us . You will nor be forgotten. God bless your family.
April 30, 2007
I ddi not know Ryan perosnally. I wish I had. What a beautiful smile and I can tell his smile and his heart were both wonderful. My heart is broken for you and all the other fine young men and women who are gone too soon as result of this heinous act. Until Ryan's last minute, he was making sure that a dorm resident was OK, "tending his sheep" as the Bible teaches us. It breaks my heart to know what a dear, fine son is gone, a son who is one of our brothers. from all I have read and heard in many papers across the globe, I really missed out by not knowing Ryan, but what a precious example. From now on, I am going to make an all out effort to try do for others and take better care of my "brothers and sisters" with the example Ryan has set before me and the rest of the world. I read that Ryan was a twin. I can only imagine the loss all the family and friends of Ryan feel but to lose your twin is even more of a tragedy. I am deeply sorry to all of your family and all of his friends. He must have been an incredible person and know that his spirit will prevail forever and ever. One day, you will be reunited and for eternity. This is God's promise to us when we believe. Ryan is busy polishing the stairway to heaven and will be there when you arrive and in the interim, he will watch over you and be your guardian angel. He was an angel on this earth. God bless. I send love, hope and prayers.

RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise up, slowly, Angel.
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly midst the faces,
In sorrow now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh unyielding truth
That Death could steal my loved one
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel.
Do not leave me here alone,
Where the warmth of mortal essence
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes
Whispered through the drying leaves,
And caress my brow with raindrops
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise up slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song
Which calls you through the shadows
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in your downy cape
Of sunshine, warm with love,
And kiss a tear-stained mother's face
With moonlight from above.

Then wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond,
And guide me safely homeward
To your world,which lies beyond.

Just spread your wings and take me
In reunion’s sweet embrace,
And we shall soar, together,
To a different time and place.

For the parents, bless you.

JEHOVAH LOVES US ALL JUST IN THE DAY OF NOAH WILL BE IN THE DAY OF MAN SO WE MUST PUT OUR TRUST AND FAITH IN JEHOVAH AND HIS SON!!!!

Letter From Heaven

By, Ruth Ann
To my dear family, some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you".

"It's good to have you back again, you were missed when you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.

I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on that list, was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you...in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain,
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned,
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er,
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too:
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain;
Then you can say to God at night..."My day was not in vain".

And now I am contented...that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as in your way you go.

When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go...from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...you're coming here to me.

THis is sooo true and beautiful. I felt it would help the family. I am in sorrow and pain for your grief. I have a son that I would feel devistated if anything happened to him. Love you all...Diana Montgomery

As you left this earth is not when everyone recognized your worth. But recognized what their worth was here on earth. It was that moment watching the news that you were a young man who had so many accomplishments that it was realized what are we doing on this earth while passing through, GOD HAD BIG BIG PLANS FOR YOU! You are in the hands of the LORD, through you passing through here should be a true testament that God takes the GOOD first. Your smile, your heroism, your talents, your dignity, and most of all your love for people will never go unforgotten, you are a Role Model in the spirit of all young people. You will be missed and a fond memory each will hold.
April 26, 2007
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
April 26, 2007
My heart and prayers are with you all..

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

REST IN PEACE SWEET BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS ANGEL
April 26, 2007
I did not know Ryan personally, but my daughter Nicole did. They moved into the dorm together the same day 4 years ago and became instant friends and Nicole had a confidant that she knew she could go to with anything that was going on. My entire family sends our heartfelt condolences and it may be hard for all that knew Ryan, but to his family...he was a great young man and will NEVER be forgotten! God Bless all of you. Ryan is walking among God's angels and I know he is going to be ranked way on top to watch over all of us.
April 26, 2007
may god be with you through this time of sorrow.i couldnt imagine loosing a child , i know the mother has to be so torn apart.just look to the lord and he will comfort your heart.i didnt know ryan, but from the stories ive heard he seemed to be avery intelligent young man with a good heart.god bless the family.
April 26, 2007
I read that there is no bond stronger than the between a mother and her child. However true this maybe, I also know that there is no bond like the bond twins share. I know this because I have a twin and the bond is one that I cannot explain nor put into words.

The entire family is in my prayers daily. However I send out a special prayer for Ryan's twin. This bond goes beyond that of just another sibling.

May God continue to bless and keep you all each and everyday.
April 26, 2007
Dear Clark Family,
My Sincere condolence goes out to you. Do not allow that beautiful smile Ryan carries to diminish from your heart and mind. Now you carry it! Ask Jehovah through His son Jesus Christ to carry the pain. Psalms 55:22/James 1:13
April 26, 2007
Dear Bereaved Family:

Children of God are not strangers. I feel the hurt that you are feeling and I pray that God will comfort you through this time and in the future. We will understand it better by and by - just keep your trust in God. He'll be there whenever you need HIM.
April 26, 2007
God will continue to bless and keep you.

Ryan Christopher Clark’s cell rings a familiar tone
He picks it up without a groan
He speaks with sincerity of heart
His honesty and caring playing their part
He closes his cell smiles not revealing what transpired
He doesn’t indulge others in someone else’s murky mire
He gave a smile and a laugh just as he should
Ryan with the Marching Virginians Stood
The Spirit of Tech, That I may serve
No one ever got on his last nerve
His nickname was stack
A sense of humor he didn’t lack
A son, a friend and an awesome twin to Bryan
The thoughtful, loving, Virginia Tech Resident Advisor Ryan

April 26, 2007
Dear Clark Family,
Though I did not know your beautiful son, I feel like I do. He had touched my heart and my life. I cannot imagine the pain his loss has left you with. I wish that I could take away all of your pain, but I can't. I can't rewind time and bring your baby back to you. I wish I could.
I look at your child's beautiful smile. I read stories of how he was such a loving, intellegent, kind, good young man. I know that it is because of the people you are, that he was the man he was growing into becoming.
He was too good for this world. His light too bright, too pure, he could not remain with you. I have no doubt that your baby sits beside you on those days where you play the 'What if...' game, that he reaches out and touches your tearstained cheeks, lays a loving hand on your hand. He is your angel now. Always beside you, always around you. Upon reaching Heaven, I bet the only regret he had was that he could not spend one more day with you. Tell you that he loved you one more time. No doubts he knows how much you love him.
This bright light taken too quickly, shined with goodness and sparkled in promise. This world is a dimmer place because he is not in it anymore.
Though all the tragedy, LOVE remains. The love you have of him, and the love he has for you. No one can take that away. No one can take your happy memories, no one can erase him from your heart~ he lives there now and for always.
I have no doubts that he is playing with that big band in the Heavens now, keeping a close eye on all of those he loved.
I wish I had words that could make the hurt less, but I don't. Not really. I can only tell you that your boy was everything I hope mine to be. I hope that they become half the man Ryan was growing into, that he was.
So, I tell you that you do not mourn alone. Strangers who you do not know weep. There are teardrops on keyboards all over the world.
As an Army wife, I expect that there is a possibilty that my loved one might not come home should he return to Iraq. No one expected when they sent their child to college that there was this chance. I want you to know that your son has made a difference in the world around him. He was a good and beautiful young soul, one that outshines the stars above.
I wish I could say more, but I don't know how to say it. May God bless you and keep you. May Faith blanket your aching soul and give you comfort.
Your dear baby has touched us all. I look at him and I see my sons. I look at him and know that God returned His angel to His side. May you find peace. God bless you all.
~A Proud Army Wife~

No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.
April 25, 2007
to the family, you are in my prayers
April 25, 2007
I very sorry of the lost of your son, just to the lord and things are sure too get better bye and bye. I will be praying for your family.
April 25, 2007
I am all the way here in Indiana, and would like to express my sympathy to Ryan's family and friends. To his family know that you may have lost someone close, but you have also gained an angel. May God Bless you all.
April 25, 2007
I have read so many comments about this young man over this period of mourning. He sounds like a wonderful person. Some 2,000 years ago, the Bible writer Paul described Jehovah as "the God who gives comfort." (Romans 5:15) Since the Bible assures us that Jehovah does not change with time, we can have confidence that God still gives comfort to those who serve him. (James 1;17) The Bible has helped my family and myself to endure many painful ordeals and though it was terribly difficult, we survived, a bit stronger than before. May our Heavenly Father be with you and your family through this time of deep sadness as you reflect on the "good memories" Our hearts belong to you!
April 25, 2007
May the hearts and people touched by the blessings of Ryan continue his good works by touching others. He will be missed.
April 25, 2007
On behalf of the Members of First Christian Church, in Burlington Iowa, we want to express our utmost condolences at this most difficult time in your lives. May it be a comfort to you and your family and friends to know that you are being remembered right now and in the months to come in the thoughts and prayers of so many. It is our prayer that you will feel God’s everlasting love and presence in this time of sorrow and that you turn to Him for His strength to guide your way through these troubled times. We sincerely hope and pray that your tremendous grief at this time will gradually diminish while the precious memories of your loved ones will last forever. May you find peace in God’s never failing love and care and may God's blessing be with you and your family at this time. It is our fervent prayer that you find strength in the Lord!
Jesus told his disciples, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4.

April 25, 2007
My sincere prayers are with your family at this time. Your son 's life had so much meaning and I will always remember his sacrifice. Only God can bring the peace and comfort you need at this time but I hope it helps to know so many people around the world have you all in their prayers. May Ryan be rewarded in Glory for a job well done here on earth. Remember, God is your refugee and strength (Psalm 46).
April 25, 2007
We are heart struck over the senseless actions of one individual. Our thoughts are with you. After the tears stop flowing and the pain softens try to remember the time you shared with your loved one and the memories you made, Memories are eternal and forever and know one can take that away from you.
April 24, 2007
To Ryan's family,
I wish to express my sincere sympathy to you for the loss of this beautiful person. I did not know him or any of the other students but I feel as if I do now.
For someone to touch as many lives as Ryan did, he had to be a very special individual. When you look at his picture and see that radiant smile, you see all that is good. The world must share in this loss. If there were more Ryan's on this planet, everyone would be better off.
Please know that many people around the world are praying for you and hoping that God will walk with you throughout this long and painful journey. I'm sure your faith will help you deal wit this tragic loss.
I truly believe Ryan is in a better place. Always remember, as much as you loved him - God loved him even more. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead reflecting on the many beautiful memories you have of your beloved "Ryan."
April 24, 2007
Our family sends their deepest sympathy to your family. You are in our prayers. May the love of Jesus sustain you as you go through this tough time. Ryan has joined that cloud of witness that compass about us. I wept with your children as they shared their thoughts on Good Morning America. God bless you all.
April 24, 2007
Perhaps strength doesn't reside in having never been broken ....but in the courage required to grow strong in the broken places.
April 24, 2007
There's not much I can say. Maybe these words may help just a little...My the work I've done speak for me! Ryan's work speak's to us all, and most of all God! From the Tuskegee University family, Rest in PEACE Ryan!!!!
April 24, 2007
I don't know Ryan but I bet we'd be friends! He is such a cool person and I know that he is playing in the Lords Band (since he's a good southern boy maybe some gospel or blues) I pray that the Lord give the family a comfort that I or no one else wil ever know. God Bless you! May the Lord be your strength in time of trouble.
April 24, 2007
To the Clark Family: My heartfelt sympathies go out to you during this terrible time. From all that I've read about Ryan, what a hero, what a role model for all people, regardless of age, color, sex or station in life! To Ms Clark, you should feel proud of the wonderful job you did in the development of such a wonderful human being in this day and age! What a difference Ryan has made in this world - especially his work with special needs young people who will truly feel the loss. Thank you for sharing your magnificent son, brother, friend, with all of us. Because of Ryan's work, I have been inspired to work harder as a special educator. While he may gone, he'll never be forgotten. Remember, 'one day at a time.' May your lives continue to be richly blessed by the memories you have of this young man who has been a blessing to us all.
April 24, 2007
It is so shocking what happened on that sorrowful day
In my prayers you will forever stay
Although we never met and I did not know you
This is a poem for you to say my adieu
It is a shame you can not be with us today
Due to everything that happened I am still in dismay
Now you are up in a better place
We will never forget your honor and grace
Please look over us, protect us from dangers
You are missed by your family and countless strangers
I wanted to let you know you are in the thoughts of many
Condolences and commiserations are aplenty
I bless your family hope they stay strong
In my thoughts they will always belong
I say to you and the other decease
I wish that you all rest in peace
April 24, 2007
Ryan sounds like he was a WONDERFUL person. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
April 24, 2007
To The Clark Family. God knew He needed a perfect and special someone who would lead and so He took the best and that best was Ryan. My heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with your family and the entire Virginia Tech Family. Be strong, keep the faith and God will see you through.

To the Family of Ryan Clark:

I did not know Ryan but how blessed you are to have been given such a wonderful gift of life. To know that Ryan touched so many hearts and spirits and enriched so many young lives is such a tribute to his legacy. I know that these words cannot answer the question of 'why' but know that God and others (strangers even) are in this with you. We are crying and mourning with you and for you and feel the loss of this your son and the sons and daughters of all of those whose lives were taken. You are not alone---we who are nameless are standing beside you in spirit, and we are praying that God will comfort, strengthen and protect you---so that one day you will be able to look heavenward and know that you (and all of us)were blessed to have Ryan as a Godly gift and treasure- May God Bless you always
April 24, 2007
In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

May God Bless and Keep your Family during this time of Sorrow.
April 24, 2007

I did not know Ryan, but from what everyone said about him I know he was a very special young man. My prayers go out to his family and his friends. I am so sorry for all of the victims and their families and friends. God will see you all through this very difficult time.
April 24, 2007
Ryan and I were friends in the band at Lakeside High School and in a few classes. I was unable to make it to the memorial this past weekend, but would like to especially give my condolences to Bryan. My thoughts are with you and your entire family.

Ryan was an amazingly spirited man who everyone is proud of.
April 24, 2007
To the family of Ryan,
Sorry is such a small word to say when you have lost so much. Your son/brother lives on in your hearts and in your memories. May one day soon you find comfort in those memories and knowing what a wonderful job you did raising such a kind hearted young man. He is truely a hero!
April 24, 2007
To the Clark Family:

In your time of loss, you are in my prayers and my heart. Personally, I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Ryan. After being given a glimpse of the wonderful person that he was, it would have been an honor to know him. I aspire to be the person that he was and his example gives me the strength to continue. The world could benefit from having more people like Ryan. It saddens me that your family and the world suffered the loss of a precious treasure. Please take comfort that he is an angel resting in the loving arms of God. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and he will never fail you. God Bless.
April 24, 2007
I didnt know any of the people that passed, but this whole thing has gotten to me, alot. I am 15 years old and I'm a freshman at Crawford County High School in Roberta, GA. This tragedy has most definatley opened up the eyes of many people, even in other states far from Virginia. Even my school in this little town we know as Roberta are buckling down and making sure that our schools are safer. It has opened up my eyes to all the possiblities at schools, here in Georgia, Virginia, and all over the world also. My condolences go out to all the friends and family of the victims. I can't possibly begin to imagine what they must be going through. Stay strong, VT will pull through!
April 24, 2007
Clark Family,

My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I pray that each day will get a little better for you and that your memories of Ryan will give you the added comfort that God (he will send you a Comforter) is providing.

My friend Nadia, just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my prayers and my hope is that you can find the strength to face each day as it comes. When all else fails, remember that God will be there for you. Take care and God bless.
April 24, 2007

My prayers are with the family of Ryan Clark. I am a native of Augusta & have seen such wonderful things regarding Ryan. I know that the community is surrounding this family and at the same time bearing withness to each of the band members, impacting their lives just as Ryan did. May God bless you all & hold you in His hand!
April 24, 2007
To Ryan Clark's Family:

I send you my condolences for Ryan's brief stay here on earth, but I do ask of you all to listen & observe your surroundings every day when you awake for RYAN is only an earshot away. That ray of sun drawing on your face or that whisper you thought you heard while walking was and is him letting you know HE -Ryan is A-Okay...

To Ryan:

I ask of you to take care of my Handicap Son, he too has gone to Heaven to join others like himself. They say you are healed of your illnesses but I ask you just in case Ryan (for you had the love of the Handicap) to seek him out and give him a Giant HUG from us here below. Thank you Ryan.

April 23, 2007
All Glory to God, now Ryan is in the Bossum of the Lord. May God bless the Clark family.
April 23, 2007
Ryan sounded like a great leader. They don't just pick anyone to be a RA at VT. It makes me sad to think what a fine man he was, and that his life was cut short. God Bless you and your family. Your loss will not be forgotten.
April 23, 2007
God needed an Angel and now he has a special one. May God be with you during this time of loss.
April 23, 2007
What a special "angel" in heaven now. There are many of us who never knew your family but as a community we feel your loss. Ryan was a special person to your family and so many of his friends. God knows best and God takes the best home to heaven when their work on earth is done. Its so hard to say good-bye to such a great amazing person but remember you will see Ryan again some day. Trust in God and know you have a very amazing angel watching over you at all times. My God grant you the strength you need to get thur this hardship. Ryan will be celebrated as his mother wishes, everytime someone speaks his sweet name, it will be a blessing to our Lord, cause he knew he had a awsome person living on this earth that touched so many people and Ryan will still touch so many people thur his death. God bless you Ryan Clark and your family and friends as well and one day son I will get to meet you in Heaven. Thank you for your heavenly wings.
April 23, 2007
I am so sorry for the loss of your son. It hurts me dearly to see a promising young man taken at such an early age. He will be missed by millions of people around the world that never knew him. Be strong.

I know that you are sad and that your heart is braking. But let other people help you grieve. It will take a while and maybe longer, but Ryan is never far away from your heart and dreams.
May you and your family God speed.
You and your family will always be on my mind.
Take Care and God Bless.

As a mother of twins myself I can't begin to imagine that pain that your family is going through. I sincerest heartfelt condolences go out to you and your entire family especially Ryans brother. May the bond that they share never be broken. He will continue to live on through his brother and everyone that loved him He was a great young man for putting his life on the line to help out a young lady who needed his help.

I didn't know Ryan at all but from the stories that I have heard on television he was a very brave young man. It is so nice to know that in this day and age that we still have young guys who are willing to put other peoples needs before thier own. I couldn't believe that the virginia tech tragedy has hit so close to home. My heart felt sympathy's go out to you and your family. May god be with you in your time of need. I believe that Ryan is in heaven looking down on us all. May God Bless You.

What can be said about someone you never met but feel now as if you will carry a part of their spirit in your heart forever? For every beat of a drum, wherever it may be, Ryan will be there showing the way! Although I never met Ryan, it is hard not to feel like that smile says it all. Remember:

God only takes those that are needed as Angels to carry out his word and work. Ryan is an Angel!!

Our loss is always heavens gain. Such it is with the physical loss of Ryan here on earth. What joy there is though in knowing he lives forever there with his Heavenly Father. What joy there has been in reading stories about this incredible young man. What a testimony he had and will continue to have even in his death. Just know that your family (your brothers and sisters in Christ) are praying for you on a daily basis. May God extend His loving arms around you in all you do -- today, tomorrow and all the days yet to come.

Even in your sorrow you must be so proud of your son and brother. He must have been so special and will be greatly missed here on earth. You know that he is in a better place so let that help to console you when thinking of his sinceless death. God bless you all.

I am originally from Augusta. I am so proud of our city and their generous hearts helping the family out at this difficult time. I hope that this helps to ease your pain.

Ryan,

Though I do not know you personally I am deeply, deeply saddened on the sudden death of what I see as a mother myself, a handsome, bright individual. May you rest in peace and I am certain no one will never, ever forget you. As my daughter enters college in the Fall, I am so grateful to have her with me; and you will always be in our hearts.

God Bless You and Your Family.

April 23, 2007
my daughter played in high school band. it was hard but she loved it. to play in band, and have 3 majors must have been very hard. ryan has touched everyone with his enthusasim. please accept our condolences in this time of your loss.
April 23, 2007
I did not know you or your family. But I don’t believe there is a person in the world whose heart has not been touched by this tragedy. There is nothing in this life that brings us more sorrow than to lose loved ones in death. Even harder to bear is when the lives of loved ones are lost due to an unexpected tragedy. The shock can be overwhelming.
Be assured that God promises that he…”is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalms 34:18) Nothing can bring us more peace of mind than the inspired words of… the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Take comfort and solace in the Bible's message as we all await the time when GOD…” will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
April 23, 2007
I'm not going to say I know what you're going through 'cause I don't. But like so many others I don't know your son. My deepest sympathy, heart and love goes out to your family. And you'll always be in my prayers.
April 23, 2007
My heart is deeply saddened by this tragedy. Please accept my deepest sympathy during your time of loss. Continue to look to God in prayer, as my family will continue to pray for yours.
April 23, 2007
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

April 23, 2007
To Ryan Clark family our thoughts and prayers are with to your family. I am praying for your family and friends.

Dearest Clark Family,
We don't know each other personally, but I wanted to let you know how much I share in your grief. You should be very proud of your son and the legacy he has left behind. I'm proud that he came from our city! His smile & spirit were both as bright as his future. I know you're full of unanswered questions and all the "why's" that come along with the sudden and unnecessary death of someone you love, but just know that God's grace is sufficient. My thoughts and prayers are continually with you all.
May God continue to bless you in your time of sorrow.
April 23, 2007

My prayers are with all of you.Kristin lives in Cartersville Ga.- Tiffany lives in Dobbins California.They were unable to make it back - we all watched the Memorial on t.v.The girls would love to hear from Bryan anytime.
April 23, 2007
Ms. Clark and family, like so many others I did not know Ryan but he touched all of our hearts and souls and we shed tears with you. I can't imagine the pain you feel now but in time take comfort in knowing what an amazing young man you raised. At such a young age to know how many lives Ryan has touched. If we could all leave this world with such dignity and grace and having touched just one life the way Ryan has touched so many, what a better world we would have. Ryan in his short time made a hugh contribution to society and has truly left his mark. I lost my mother a year ago and know that the grace and strength of God sustained me over the last year and my prayer for you and your family will be that God gives you the same grace,comfort and peace in the days to come.
April 23, 2007
To the family of Ryan, be strong and look to the hill whence cometh all your help. To see a smile like that is a great lost in the future.
April 23, 2007
My deepest sympathy to Ryan's family and friends. May God bless and comfort each of you.
April 23, 2007
Ryan certainly left a legency behind for which his family will be very proud. There's a song that say's, "May the work I've done speak for me." To the family I say his work is speaking for him. He has made an impact on so many lives. Youth near and far are being touched by the difference he made. To his parents I say thank you for training him up in a way that he knew was right. May the love shown towards you and your family help you to know you did all that God asked of you. The way he lived is the way he died, being a servant. Now God can say to Ryan take a rest my GOOD and FAITHFUL SERVANT. My prayers are with you and your family.
April 23, 2007
"My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest." then he said to Him, " If your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here." May God bless your famiy in Jesus name.

April 23, 2007
To the family and friends of Ryan:

Words cannot express my condolences. I am truly amazed at Ryan's character; who he was and what he stood for. I admire his academic performance and his love for children and for the university. I did not know him but what I have learned about him through the media is awesome. His bravery is admirable and I pray that you will continue to let his spirit live on. Maybe you will have a scholarship fund in his memory or some other activity that he would have wanted as his legacy. If so, let me know and I will support it.

I am from Martinez but I did not know your son personally, however God has laid it on my heart to share with you my most deepest sympathy for your loss and the loss in our community. I cannot imagine the anguish you must feel and I pray for God to give you the peace that surpasses all understanding. Please know that your son, Ryan, will never be forgotten...for it is obvious that he was a young man of fine character and brought much joy to those he met. He brought joy to me from his remarkable story without ever meeting him.

God bless you,

Dearest Clark family,

I too am from Augusta, GA--and so sad to hear the loss of your dear son Ryan Christopher Clark---certainly one of the finest young men from our community. May God wrap his loving arms around your aching hearts and fill your soul with peace and strength all the days of your life. I am praying for you every day. What a wonderful, brave person Ryan was---just going to the aid of someone in need. Always remember that GOOD always prevails over evil and NOTHING is bigger than the love of Jesus Christ. God was surely smiling the day he called Ryan home. You have so much that he gave you in his short time on earth, but find comfort knowing that Ryan is with the Lord. God bless you always. HUGS from an Augusta girl.
April 22, 2007

April 22, 2007
It is my loss that I never met Ryan. Thank you for sharing your memories of the wonderful boy he was and man he had become. The grief I feel cannot come close to your pain. I do know, however, that this whole area feels like we have lost a family member. The outpouring of love, prayers, grief, and the coming together of this community is something I have never seen before. The lovely words I have read here from all over the world are amazing. God must have really, really needed Ryan up there pretty badly, that's all I can say. God bless your wonderful family. Be strong and your love for each other will get you through.

April 22, 2007
To the Clark Family and Loved Ones:
No words that I can put on this page can change what has happened to your beloved Ryan. Nothing happens in this life where we all don't learn something. His smile says it all, he loved the little life that he had and from what I heard on the news, he helped many others in need in his service work. God looks at your works, and because He does, your loved one is at Home with the Lord. The strength you need can only come from The Father and knowing that you have prayers going up for you more abundantly then the raindrops that are falling down at this time.

"A leaf has fallen from the tree..." "No one noticed just you and me." May God Bless you and hold you to His bossom in your time of saddness.
April 22, 2007
WE didn't know Ryan personally but we admire his bravery and his willingness to help someone in distress. You should be proud of your son; he's a hero in our eyes.
April 22, 2007
There is something special about this young man that touches my heart so; he was obviously very intelligent, a diligent worker and a lover of life. I am deeply moved by this tragedy, but especially by the comments on Ryan. I am raising a son. He is 11 yrs old. I can only hope he will become as enthusiastic, intelligent, and talented as this young man. Ryan's light was only dimmed here on earth. It continues to shine in heaven. Shine on, Ryan, shine on.
April 22, 2007
To the family and friends of Ryan, please accept my deepest sympathies at this most sorrowful time.

April 22, 2007
I am deeply saddened by the lost of your loved one. At times like these it is comforting to know that the Bible tells us at Acts 24 verse 15 that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. So with that knowledge, know that there is a hope that you will see your loved one again.
April 22, 2007

A Prayer For Ryan Family
Just close your eyes and open your heart and feel your worries and cares depart
Just yield yourself to the Father above and let him hold you secure in his love.
For life on earth grows more involved with endless problems that can't be solved,but God only ask us to do our best then He will take over and finish the rest.
So when you are tired, discouraged and blue there is always one door that is open to you. And that is the door to the House of Prayer and you'll find God waiting to meet you there.
And the House of Prayer is no further away than the quiet spot where you kneel and pray.
For the heart is a temple when God is there as we place ourselves in His loving care
And He hears every prayer and answers each one when we pray in His name "thy will be done." The burdens that seemed too heavy to bear are lifted away on the wings of a prayer.
What I see convices me God exists. What I cannot see, confirms it.
Just keep Ryan memory with you for memorires never die He will be there with you when you look across the sky. He will be there in the clouds, in the birds that fill the air, in the beauty of a fragrant rose you will find his memory there. You will feel his tenderness in a baby's gentle touch, you will hear him if you listen in the twilight's gentle hush. When your hearts are heavy and you feel that you are all alone just reach down deep inside of you for your heart is now Ryan home. Ryan will always be with you, he will never go away for he will live on in you hearts "FORVER AND A DAY'. I'm so very sorry for your lost. I hope this help give the family some peace.
April 22, 2007
I have heard great things about your son via his work in the Tech Marching Band .... know that you have the support of all the families of the UVA Marching Band ! We offer our sympathy in this difficult time. Ryan was well thought of and will be missed.

April 22, 2007
To the Clark Family,
I attended Ryan's service at Lakeside yesterday, not because I knew Ryan personally, but because he is family. I am a Hokie (class of 94). I want you to know that Ryan's memory through the remarkable words and music and photos shared by his friends and family yesterday, are pulling me through this dark time in the aftermath of 4/16/07. I have reflected much on this tragedy in trying to find a way to go on from here. Today, I find myself smiling at strangers and greeting people I didn't know (no, not with the screetch!) after hearing that this is what Ryan would have wanted. I think of all the funny memories shared. I think of Ryan's brother Bryan, standing up front at the service with his own "electric smile", honoring his twin with his strength and humor. My Hokie pride is very strong. My trust in The Lord is even stronger. But, today, my optimism in my ability to overcome this mad event is returning. May God grant you peace, and peace to us all in this uncertain world. Thank you for sharing Ryan with us. WE WILL NEVER FORGET...

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

God bless you and keep you close.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day

April 22, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

If you would please
A newspaper with no obituaries
Instead there’ll be a section
Called the Resurrected
Imagine with me

Imagine with me
If you would please
A world full of peace
With no more sickness, or pain
Where death’s out the way
Imagine with me

Imagine with me
NO! Have faith me
This is not just a dream
But a promise, you see
The gift God gives is everlasting life
By means of His son Jesus Christ

Romans 6:23

May it comfort you to know that God is not
Unrighteous as to forget our deeds. He has
A book of life where he remembers all things

I did not have the pleasure of meeting you in person, and if not for this tradegy your name or face would not be etched into my mind. I wanted to say especially to your Mother what a beautiful young man you raised. A man who could not be satisfied with one thing he wanted to do in life he chose three and did so with pride by having a 4.0 grade point average what a difficult but wonderful feat. Ryan, your smile lights like the suns rays, and I know it comforted and warmed all that came in touch with you. Thank you for being an outstanding African American man and making those stero-types disappear. Your wings have been earned and I know you will be leading the marching band with Hallelujah praises in Heaven. Take Care, Soar high as the stars, and continue to reach the heights tried by many, obtained by few in your Father's House. You will be missed.
April 21, 2007
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.

To the Clark Family,

My prayers are with you. Ryan sounds like a wonderful young man. I know you will miss him dearly. I too know the pain you are suffering for I lost my 26 year old son last Memorial day in a drowing accident. All I can tell you is be strong, and turn to our Lord for comfort and strength. It will be a long hard road for you all, but time will heal all wounds. Just take comfort knowing that he is free now and smiling down on all of you. God bless you all.

Sorrowful tears
well up in my eyes
For those who have fallen
like rain from the skies

Each life was so precious
so many are gone
May they shine now from Heaven
like a new morning dawn

I cannot make sense
of this tragic event
I offer my heart
and my prayers have been sent

Each one had a dream
Each one had a goal
Each one had a family
Each one has a soul

Life must go on
for loved ones so shattered
Reach to their hearts
and show them it mattered

For families so lost
For friends left to cope
I greive for their hearts
I pray for their hope

In memory of those who have fallen and for those left to grieve.
For those left injured in harms way...
I pray for peace and healing of your hearts.
April 20, 2007

I was in my high school band and when I saw Ryan's picture in his uniform I was reminded of the many awesome friends that I had who were (from what I have read) just like Ryan. I know that he was the kind of guy that everyone loved and you can see his light shining brightly in pictures. I am saddened to know his Earthly light has been put out. But may his light eternally SHINE!
April 20, 2007
I did not know Ryan but from what I've heard he was an amazing person and it is such a tragedy to lose someone who was such a bright light in our world. I hope God is with his family right now just like my thoughts and prayers are. May God watch over them and all of the students at Virginia Tech.

To the Clark family: From what I have read about Ryan, he is exactly the kind of young man I would have loved to have had as a role model for my sons. Your loss is a loss for all of us who will never know Ryan. God bless you.
April 20, 2007
I am very sorry about your loss. I pray that God will continue to keep your family through your time of sorrow. God Bless.
April 20, 2007
Please know that I mourn with you even though we do not know one another. Please accept my sympathy on the loss of such a fine young man. Please remember this...God don't put on us more than we can bear. You may not see it now, but in time you will. Look to God for your strength. God Bless.
April 20, 2007
To the family, I will keep you all in my prayers. May God give you the strength to get you thru this terrible ordeal.
April 20, 2007

may god bless you and your family and keep the good times in your heart always.
April 20, 2007
To the family and friends of Ryan Clark,

As I read about each of the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy, I find myself wishing I had known Ryan.
Those who did know him speak of him as someone magnetic, but without the 'bravado' that charisma sometimes brings. He seems like the kind of guy everyone would want as a friend, and from the sound of it, he *was* a friend to anyone he met. He also seemed very loving and generous to others. His time meant a lot because it seems he spent it well.

It's obvious he left a huge impression on those who knew him well *and* on those who met him once. That alone says a lot about him.
I am sure you are all proud.

I hope you will find comfort in remembering him in your hearts as the young man who cared about others and that those others will remember him for how he treated them.

Sincerely,
April 20, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
April 20, 2007
IN TIMES LIKE THESE THERE ARE NO WORDS FROM FAMOUS POETS OR PLAYWRIGHTS THAT CAN DO JUSTICE EXCEPT THE WORD OF GOD. TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT TO YOU OWN UNDERSTANDING. TRY NOT TO MAKES SENSE OF THIS GOD HAS THIS IN HIS HANDS. PLEASE KNOW THAT OUR FAMILY IS STANDING IN THE GAP FOR YOU IN PRAYER. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU COMFORTED DURING THIS TIME
April 20, 2007
I didn't know you and yet i feel a great loss for everyone who did and for the whole world at large becuase yet another special person has been lost.How can anyone comfort your family- nothing can make it feel better-they loved you, but the Lord loves you more and took you home to a better place- i pray for strength to all whose lives you touched and its strange that now you've touched even more lives- you are a true hero.
April 20, 2007
You have my deepest sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers. God Bless.
April 20, 2007

April 20, 2007
Ryan, you left before you said good-bye; to meet with your savior, Jesus on high. To the Ryan Family, you are not alone; memories of Ryan will remain in your hearts and in your home.

This tragedy is hard to understand, but God has now taken Ryan by the hand. He has earned his long white robe; for God wanted another loving and courageous soul.

His outstanding work on earth has come to an end; his work in his heavenly home will now begin. God has a much bigger job for him to do; he will be looking down from heaven to help those he left behind make it through.

My deepest sympathy to the Ryan Family. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
April 20, 2007
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worhip God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
April 20, 2007
I would like to send a prayer out to the family everyone say they know how you feel no they don't but god does and I'm going to leave your angle in his hands of understanding my god be with you and your family through the good the bad and the happy days. May God bless you through out the days and many to come. (keep right on smiling)
April 20, 2007
To the famliy and friends of Ryan all of us will remember him by his hard work and great kindness.
April 20, 2007
Your son and brother died going to the aid of another human being. It sounds like he died doing what he 'lived' doing. Helping others and enriching others lives. He touches our hearts in ways I cannot explain. God Bless you all at this time.
April 20, 2007
My prayers are with you during this time of sorrow...May god Bless You..
April 20, 2007

My heart cries for your loss. May everyones comments help you deal.
April 20, 2007
My prayers are with you all and may Jesus give you comfort.
April 20, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

"Life is a Journey"
(author unknown)
***********************************
Life is but a stopping place,
a pause in what's to be,

A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way,

We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay...

Our destination is a place,
far greater than we know.

For some the journey's quicker,
for some the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
we'll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace,
together with the Lord.

Our prayers are with you.
April 20, 2007
You are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort and strength in the Lord. He seemed to have been an amazing young man with many talents. The world will truly miss this gifted young man.
April 20, 2007
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

April 20, 2007
My heart is also broken for your loss. I also have a son in college and I cannot imagine the loss you must feel. My prayers are with you and your family.

To the Clark family,
I've never met Ryan personally. But after reading all the lovely remarks about him, I feel somehow Ryan and I have met.
I can't begin to know what it feels like to loose a son, brother, etc. My heart bleeds for you, I know there is a deep wound right now. I know this because I lost my mother in September 2006 and it has been good and bad days, but I pray to God every day to make me strong again. God does answer prayers!
Know that Ryan has completed his job here. All the extraordinary, helpful and love gestures he made during his lifetime has opened the golden gates of heaven. He has already received his degree and God has something special for him to do. Remember the good times, that beautiful smile. For God will take care of you, there will be a light at end of this dark tunnel. Ryan is watching you, saying don't weep for me, for I have accomplished all my goals and I have received the highest degree ever.
Ryan, take your rest, we all loved you, but God loved you best!

Rest in peace little brother!

It is my sincere prayer that you will be comforted in the days, months, and years ahead with wonderful memories of this awesome young man! May GOD keep you in his loving care.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

April 19, 2007
My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

so them also which sleep in Jesus will GOD bring with him.

April 19, 2007
To the family of Ryan Clark, my thoughts and prayers are with you. You are not alone there are people out there that care and are praying for you in the midst of the senseless tragedy. Images of your son were the first I saw the morning after when his brother and sister were on a morning show speaking of their beloved brother, my heart became heavy and I was overcome with sadness when I saw the face of this young man whose memory pages read of him being such a gifted, highly educated, and active student in school. May the love of God and the peace that passes all understanding be with his parents, siblings, and other family members, and friends in the coming days ahead as they try to cope with everything that has happened. My heart is so sorry for your loss for I am a mother myself and I grieve with all the other mothers out there that have been thrusted into this unbelievable nightmare. I wish I could put my arms around each of you, hug you and wipe away your tears but I can't so I send them your way in spirit. The Bible says Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. May your beloved son be resting in the arms of God.
April 19, 2007
What a handsome young man. We are very sorry for your loss. Please know that God is with you.

Over and over again I keep seeing Ryan's face and smile as his picture shows up on TV. I wish I could have met him, because he seems like he was an amazing person. His is one face I will never forget! May God get you through these difficult times. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers, along with the nation.

God, shared this beautiful child with you and now it is time for him to rest. What a wonderful memory to have of a person who was so sincere, loving, intelligent and caring. Though I did not know him personally as a mother, sister, cousin and friend my heart goes out to you and you will always be in my prayers asking God to smile on your family and somehow allow you to see the Light through all of this.
April 19, 2007
Our sincere condolences to all of Ryan's Family and friends. Ryan was one of my son, Arthur's counselors at Camp Big Heart for the last 3 years. He will be missed very much and I hope this summer at Camp Big Heart all the staff and campers as well as their families will have a chance to honor Ryan in some way for his love and devotion to all who have had the opportunity to know him. Blessings and peace to you and may your memories of Ryan always bring warmth to your heart and soul.

PRAYING FOR YOUR ETERNAL REST
April 19, 2007
What a great person was lost when Ryan was killed in this tragedy. I don't know any of the victims but feel like I lost a bunch of friends. I'm crying for Ryan and all the victims. God bless the family and friends of this young man. The country is with you.
April 19, 2007
You, Mr. Clark, were a hero!
Jesus said,"Greater Love Hath No Man Than This, That He Lay Down His Life For His Friends " and that is what you did when you tried to save the young lady's life.
You acted above and beyond the call of duty and now you will join the other heroes in Heaven where you will be in the best possible company.
These are words that I usually write for fallen law enforcement, firefighters, EMS workers and military heroes who are taken to Heaven while in the course of fulfilling their promise to PROTECT and to SERVE!
God blessed you to be in their company Monday, April 16, 2007.
You made a noble sacrifice and you will be rewarded in Heaven for it.
We don't know why these things happen or when.
May you have a most beautiful and blessed eternity with Our Lord and Our God. You were loved so much by your family and friends and you will be missed!

To the family of Ryan Clark:
I want you to know how touched I was by the story of this young man whom I will not know until I meet him in Heaven. I am so impressed by the things his friends and acquaintences have said about him. He had no enemies and spread laughter and joy wherever he went, and was a young man to be respected. He has left a legacy - perhaps his purpose in life was just to live the kind of life that he did that touched and impressed so many others. Maybe because so many strangers now know of him, there will be more who will try to be just a little more like him. God Bless you in your time of sorrow. Please know that your son did not die in vain. "For greater love hath no man than that he should lay down his life for another."
April 19, 2007
I'm sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow.
April 19, 2007
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

April 19, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God Bless you.
April 19, 2007

It seems so trite to say something like "I'm sorry" at a devastating time like this. As a person directly affected by Sept. 11, I promise that while you will never be the same, you will find some semblance of peace. Give yourself all the time you need for the healing process. It is a process that you will be in the rest of your life.

Peace be the journey.

This is a tragedy for all Americans. I know we are thousands of miles away, but we feel your grief and would take it from you if we could. Take one day at a time. It's not true that time will heal. I know that firsthand. But what will carry you is the grace of God and his love that he has for you. And, his strong hand that will gently lead and guide you each day if you trust him. Lean on him for he is strong as we our weak. We're praying for you all that you'll be strengthened and comforted with Gods peace.

April 18, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

On times like these, when sorrow and unfathomable grief seem to sap the soul of its strength, there is consolation and easing from the Spirit that whispers "let it go for now" and later the assurance that "all will be well". Have faith. It can move mountains. He cares.He loves Ryan.

They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of the University of North Texas, we are sorry for your loss. This to me is the greatest loss of all. What a gifted,bright, and awesome son you must have had. He has recently (in death) become a role model for myself, me being in college, due to the fact that he pursued 3 majors. I have been inspired by his story to better succeed and keep trying no matter what. May God bless your family and comfort you in your time of sorrow. Ryan is now present with the Lord and God will forever hold him dear.

I deeply sympathize with the family of Ryan Clark. May god bless your family and give you the stregnth to go on and celebrate his life instead of mourn his death. Ryan is in a far better place now and is away form any hurt and pain the world has to offer. As a young black woman i am proud that he was who he was a young, smart, talented black man and obviously raised right. I wish i could have known him and it hurts to kno this happened to him. It instills fear in me because i am a resident of my campus at Albany State University and do i have to be fearful to go to school now?? The world is going down hill, we need to come together and make a change.
God Bless*

What a young man, great to know that a person of his caliber brought so much happiness to so many. An exceptional loss but please hold on to the memories for he will forever be with you. It's shock to read about the tragedy but losing someone like Ryan just shows the magnitude of the loss during the events that happened on the campus of Virginia Tech.

My condulences go out to this family in your time of grieving. I dont know your son but from what I have seen and heard in the last 48 hours, he made his family and friends proud. Everyone who commented on him said that he loved nothing more than to help others, so even though your loved one is gone and in a better place, know that he left this world doing what he loved most, HELPING SOMEONE ELSE!!!! May he rest in peace.
