Reflections for Town Marshal Richard Mark Clapp

Yes, we called ourselves the "Weird Musketeers" when we went to Vincennes University. Can you believe that was over 40 years ago? Arron, Mark and Me. All 3 of us went forth from there and upheld the law in different parts of Indiana. Then we lost you in 2003. I had lost contact with Aaron since he retired a few years ago. Yesterday I found out that he had passed about a year ago. I'm the only musketeer left. I will strive to carry on alone with the spirit, humor, faithfulness and honor of the Musketeers. See you when I see you guys.

So, buddy, I retired. 30 years on patrol. I have invited Debbie, Aaron and Sara to come to my retirement party. You were supposed to be there too. Whose going to crack all the one-liners? I'm sure I'll see you in the not too distant future. We will have an eternity to catch up. I do dread one thing. You've had too long to think of those one liners.

Oh Mark- Aaron and I have taken a big leap, we are stepping out in Faith to be foster parents. ....I know! We never saw it in our path either...but the Lord has placed it in our hearts and lead us down this path. Oh I how I wish you were here to see this. We have our first child in the home now. It is only going to be for a week, but it has been an amazing week. It warms my heart to see him fathering, loving on this kiddo that needs love, stability and assurance. Your son is just amazing and it is because of the example that you have set for him.

I miss you dearly dad. I miss you more and more as the big events in life come and go. We often sit and think..hmmmm... what would dad say. I'm sure though that you would be a firm supporter, a reassuring voice and well of knowledge for us now.

Missing you...remembering you....love you.

Hello darlin,
Time. I just don't understand why it keeps moving along. How can it be true that I face another year without you with me? Some days that knowledge is hard to hold on to. I'm resting in the truth that one fine day the Lord will say to me, "come", and we will never again be parted. You have my heart. Love deb

I find it amazing how God speaks to us. He gave me a reflection today about how we must walk with our brothers if we are to successfully complete the journey. I guess that's why I thought of you. Such a good brother lost for this life that can no longer come beside me on the journey. The time I walked with you was a good time in my life. 25 years of friendship closer than brothers. I've now published 3 novels. 1 dedicated to my wife. 1 dedicated to the memory of my cousin Ron and 1 dedicated to the memory of my good friend Mark. As we get older we can see the end of the journey. I don't yet know how far there is to go but I know I'm so much closer than I was when you went home 11 years ago. I know when the time comes that I reach my destination you will greet me. I'm sure you'll have a joke. I'll probably laugh until my sides hurt because you've had so long to think about it. Not that you ever needed more than a second. I'm looking forward to sharing glory with you and all my friends and loved ones who've gone before. See you when I see you.

Hello Darlin'.
Ten years and counting. How can that be? How can it still seem like both yesterday and an eternity since you went Home? The impact of your life and love for me continues to impact me every day. I miss you and look forward to that one fine day in which we will be reunited. You have my heart. Hug my mom and George. Love Deb

Mark,
Thinking about all the changes and moments we wish we could have shared with you over the last 10 years makes me lose my breath. How can it be that you have been gone from us so long. I wish that we could see you and talk to you again. I miss your smile and your laugh. I miss the support that I always felt from you. I was just a teenager when Aaron and I started dating, but I always felt welcome with you and Deb. You always were a strong beacon for me when times were tough. Aaron is such an amazing husband because of the example that you modeled for him. Thank you for that. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for laughing and smiling with me. You may have had 10 glorious years in Heaven, but you still affect my life daily.

She did it! Deb graduated Saturday from St.-Mary-of-the-Woods College. None of us ever doubted her, but it has been six years of grueling work. I know you and Mom are so proud. She begins a new career soon. Stay with her, Mark and Mom. She, and each of us, will always need you.

Hello Darlin'
I'm sad today. It is the eve of Christmas Eve and 8 Christmas' without you. There is a lot of change going on in my life. I'm leaving my job and starting an internship. I'm stepping out in faith and expecting that something will be there. I'm excited about the possibilities but really wish you were here to walk alongside me. I love you. Have a great heaven's day. Kiss my mom. Love Deb

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 8th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Here we are again. The anniversary of your EOW is Monday. 8 years. Eternity. I miss you with all the nanoseconds that have gone by. I start something new on Monday. Training for my internship. Isn't God a card. He always seems to use these special dates to make a change in my life. This is the last step of school and the first step of a new career. Pray for me, darlin'. I'm scared. I want to do well and make you proud. You were always my biggest fan. I love you Markie. Have a great heaven's day. Kiss my mom. Until that glad day when Jesus tells me to "come".

Both you and mom have been gone from us for seven years. It hurts my heart. I miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't remember...many times now with a smile. You have impacted my life forever. I'm grateful for that, but boy do I miss you. You have my heart forever. Have a great Heaven's Day, and hug my sweet Mommy. Love Deb
