The measure of Pop Rich is the beauty of his heart. The measure of Pop Rich’s real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out. The true measure of Pop Rich is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience but how he stands at times of controversy and challenges. The measure of Pop Rich is not how great his faith is, but how great his love is. One of my true life heroes is Mr. Richard Clark. When my family and I came to Maryland one of the first families we encountered was Pop Rich and Mother Alice through their son Kenny and the welcomed us into their home and life and taught us lessons to numerous to mention. To me Pop Rich was a beacon of strength and life and he would always encouraged with his phrase “Mony the power we need the power”. Pop Rich I celebrate the times I had spent with you and celebrate your new location. God Bless the Clark family my prayers are with you all.

Bishop Moncrieffe and Family.
