On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when James was killed.

To the Clark family, fellow officers, and all who call James beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Clark gave to his community and the citizens of Mississippi and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 13, 2017
