Clark,
You've been in heaven 26 months now and I still dread for the 22nd day of each month to approach. To lose someone that I loved so much brings me pain beyond belief. There are no words that anyone can say that will ease that pain, sadness or grief. I've lost someone so close, wonderful and dear to my heart and soul. I think about you everyday and night and wish that you were near but although you have left this world you'll stay within my heart guiding me like an angel even though we are apart. For love is everlasting and so are my memories, I still listen to music loudly but the music that reaches the farthest into heaven is the beating of my Heart!

Your loving wife Debby

On Our Wedding Anniversary

Clark,
Today we would have been celebrating our 40th Anniversary together. Instead I'm alone thinking about our life that once was. I remember the first day I met you, it didn't take long for us to become best friends. Little did I know that we would be together until life's end. I remember our first sunrise our first walk on the beach. The first time you ever held my hand my life completely changed. I remember our first "I love you" and when when we said "I do". I'm so thankful that god was gracious and sent me someone special as you. I remember the day you left me, my heart will never mend. We shared so much happiness in times of yesterday, and to say how much I miss you I could never find a way. I wish with all my heart that you were here with me, and we could share the laughter that there always used to be. Someday I know we'll meet again in another life elsewhere, and those special times we once again will share. 

Luv Ya,
Deb

Hey Babe,

I'm missing you so much and It's been a long two years without you here with me. I still find myself waiting for you to come back home even though I know it's not so. I know your in heaven but If it's true that time's the only thing that's gonna heal my pain, then why hasn't God healed my heart. I wonder, would you be able to answer that question If you were still here. When I'm alone driving I talk to you as if you're sitting right next to me. With every bump I hear you say, Really Deb! I just smile and say Sorry Clark, like I always did. The days are long when I'm alone and I miss our late night till early morning talks. We could talk for hours and never run out of things to say. I miss your laugh your smile and those great hugs, they always made everything better. You were my best friend and I will love you till my dying day.

Ps. You will never ever be forgotten

I Miss You! 

Clark.
You were taken from us much too soon. I think of you all the time and talk to you. What I wouldn't give to hear your voice, just one last time. I miss your laugh. I miss everything about you 

Ps. I love You

Brother In Law,
I love and miss you deeply and as I
try and write my words my heart aches and eyes fill with tears cause I still cannot believe your not here.

I can still hear your voice and I know your away fishing with your dad and brother, but when I see you in my dreams I want to grab you tightly and bring you back with me. 

Love you Bubba

Pawpaw,
These days never get easier but I know you're always watching over. It hit me like a bus when I started senior year and I couldn't talk to you, but the night before school you visited me in a dream. I graduated high school and I'm now starting college next week, and it still hasn't gotten easier but with you in my heart forever I know I can do anything I put my mind to. I'll be waiting for that dream Sunday night. I love you with my whole heart and more, I can't wait to see you again❤

Two years have gone by, and while the wound has tried to heal, there are still bruises and scars that will be here forever. A hole that will never be filled.
I never expected this to happen — and not so soon. It blows my mind how fast two years have come and gone. Two years ago, I gained my guardian angel. I miss you more than words could ever describe. Every single day of every single moment it hurts without you here with me. Sometimes, it's almost crazy how sad and broken my heart feels missing you.

On The 2nd Year Anniversary Of The Day You Went Away

Today is such a painful day full of sadness and grief for me. As I mourn the moment that you left recalling how life used to be. Loss has taught me so many things and now I face each day with happy memories to help me on my way. Though I'm full of sadness that you're no longer here your influence still guides me and I can feel you near. You were someone very special who left your mark on so many lives. Things just haven't been the same since the day you closed your tired eyes. The bond we shared will never end even though were apart. I find comfort in the memories that are deep within my heart. I miss you more than words can say, the world lost someone very dear on the day you went away.

Love Always,
From your wife you watch over

Clark.
I'm writing this letter to you up above to tell you how much I miss you with all my heart and love. I still do not understand why you had to go, it just wasn't fair. I was left here with sorrow, sometimes to much to bare. I wish so much to see you or feel your touch just one more time. I hear your voice everyday with a push of a button on a bears hand saying " I love you babe". I sometimes hear you whisper inside my thoughts, at times I can feel you around me. I know you live on through those lives you have touched. I know someday i'll see you again. In my heart i'll hold you close and keep you safe. Until then, keep sending me signs. Your always remembered and will always will be loved.

From your wife you watch over

Today you have been in heaven 23 months. Though we were separated by death my Memories of you will never fade. They will remain in a sacred space found in the center of my heart forever. Loving someone as special as you has left my heart aching, no words can describe all the grief and pain. I'd give all that I have just to see you again. Your with the angels now so i'll have to wait but we'll meet again babe at heaven's gate. May the winds of heaven blow softly and whisper in you ear. How much I love and miss you and wish that you were here.

Posted by Debby Poorboy on June 22, 2020
Today marks 22 months that you've been gone, it still hasn't gotten any easier for me living without you. I still carry the pain in my heart of you not being here with me. The hardest part of each day is pretending i'm okay. It's so easy to just stay in bed and wish the years would just hurry and pass on by. There are still times that I've had to make myself get up, some days I can hear you saying "Deb get up lets go!" There have been times I say "Clark where are we going?" I smile shake my head and get up, thank you babe for staying by my side.

Ps. I miss you so much

In Loving Memory On Fathers Day

Babe,
You meant so much and was loved by all who knew you, left behind was a trail of tears and precious memories too. I loved the sunshine in your smile and kindness in your heart, but heaven saw that you was tired which meant we had to part. Now that it's your special day, dear angels hear my prayer. Please guard Clark with your gentle wings and tend to him with great care. He was someone wonderful and words just can't convey how much I wish that he was here, once more with me today.

Today A Special Husband who's Been In Heaven 21 months

Clark,
When god was making husbands as far as I can see, he made a special soulmate especially for me. He made a perfect gentleman, compassionate and kind, with more love and affection that I could ever wish to find. He gave you my darling husband a heart of solid gold, you gave me wonderful memories only my heart can hold. Clark you was someone I could talk to that no one can replace, you was someone I could laugh with till tears ran down my face. Next time we meet we will be at heavens door, when I see you standing there I wont cry anymore. I will put my arms around you and kiss your smiling face, then the pieces of my broken heart will fall back into place.

Ps. I miss you so much babe xoxo

Hello My Love

I haven't been sleeping very well lately and today I woke up with a pain in my heart. Mother's Day has came and gone and without you here of course it wasn't the same. Matter of fact nothings the same, I have an emptiness inside of me that I don't know how to even begin to fill. When I look at pictures of you I wish I could jump in there with you. I miss you so much that when I dream of you I want to hug you so tight and not let go. I once read that every so often our loved ones will open the door from heaven and visit in our dreams, Just to say hello and to remind us they're still here, just in a different way. My mind still talks to you and my heart still looks for you, but my soul knows you're at peace.

Ps. I love you to tears
Posted by Amber Poorboy on April 23, 2020
Dad to say it’s been 1 year and 8 months since you have been gone is crazy to me. I still don’t believe it, but I don’t miss you today because it’s The 22nd I miss you today because I ALWAYS do. 
A square on the calendar isn’t the hard part; The hard part is all of the other things on all of the other days that you aren’t around for. I wish you were here, I’ll never stop wishing that . . . but I don’t need a specific date on the calendar to remember you. I’ll think of you today just as I thought of you yesterday and will again tomorrow and for the rest of my life. Words can’t explain how much I miss you. I love you so much
Posted by Debby Poorboy on April 22, 2020
Hey Babe,
Today you have been in heaven 20 months. I wish that I could visit for a day then maybe the pain in my heart would go away. I would put my arms around you and say how living life without you is the hardest thing to do. No matter how I spend my day no matter what I do not a minute goes by that I don't think of you

Ps. I miss and love you to tears
Posted by Debby Poorboy on April 13, 2020

My Wish To Heaven

I wish upon a star for my dreams to carry me to where you are. To hear your voice, to sense your touch to feel you near would mean so much. I know you're never far away and you're with me every single day. I'm wishing now with all my might that you'll come to me in my dreams tonight.

Goodnight my angel

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

Yesterday I felt okay I smiled when I thought of you. I remembered a happy time and the funny things you'd do. But today I feel so very sad I think of you and cry. I'm missing you so very much and still ask God why!? I don't know what will happened when I face another day. What will tomorrow bring? Will I cry or be okay? This rollercoaster of emotions is the worst ride of my life. Nothing can prepare you for the never ending strife. I may not handle my emotions the way that I should do. But I still think the lord for the time I had with you.

Love Always,
Deb

Clark,
Today marks another month that you have been in heaven, nineteen to be exact. I miss your touch, kisses and most of all your bear hugs. I still talk about you as if you were just away working. I haven't really dealt with your passing, I pushed it down deep so I wouldn't have to. I know its not healthy but I'm not ready to deal with you no longer being here with me. To some people your already forgotten and to others your just in the past. But to us who loved and lost you, your memory will always last. Clark you were my favorite hello and my hardest goodbye. I know everyone has a beautiful love story to tell, but I will always love ours the best.

Ps, I love you to tears

Dad, I am having a rough time and have been for awhile now. The weight on my heart at times makes it hard to breath. I miss you so much, how do I navigate through life without you...
Posted by Andrea Canales on February 19, 2020
Pops! Life just isn't the same without you here. The lump in my throat never goes away, my heart is always broken and this is just hell of hard. I love you so much and wish I could tell you one more time so I could hear "I Love you to sweetheart" We now have a red cardinal that comes to our backyard. The cardinal sits on the fence and I always say that it's you coming to show you're still here watching over us. I miss you and love you <3

Happy 56th Birthday In Heaven

Clark,
I miss the strength you brought me and the comfort that it gave, and on your birthday it's so hard pretending to be brave. They say that times a healer and that life has to go on, but my life will never be the same now that the one I love is gone. The days go by without you and each one is the same, my mind is filled with thoughts of you in tears I call your name. I shall spend your birthday dreaming that you're here, helping me to wipe away every silent tear. May angels hold you closely and sing you a happy song and I'll be sending wished today and all year long.

Ps. I will love you always and forever

Engraved in gold in a cloud above, just for you with all my love. May the angels gather and sing you the most joyous birthday song.

Ps. I love and miss you to tears

You are my special Valentine who waits in heaven above. I can no longer give you special gifts or cards so, I send you my eternal love with thousands of kisses and hugs.

Hello Babe,
I can't believe it's been 17 months today since you went away. Someone told me a story about a special door in heaven that opens every night around midnight. The door is guarded by two angels they make sure only balloons with messages go in, no birds or airplanes. The balloons are held in a room with all white walls, the colors reflect like rainbows on them. The balloons are hand delivered to each person by an angel in the early hours of the morning. I have released many balloons with notes attached over the months and I'm hoping that at least one has made it to you. Sending the messages up was the only way I was able to tell you what I wasn't giving a chance to say before you passed away.

Ps. I love and miss you to tears
Posted by Debby Poorboy on January 18, 2020
Clark,
I'm sure missing you today something awful babe. I never thought that I would be living life without you and having to ask others for help. You never did that and took care of things yourself or knew who to call to have things done. Now your gone and I don't have a clue on what to do, who to call or if it's gonna get done to your standards. It gets harder for me to even ask for help because your constantly in my head telling me not to trust or let anyone screw me over. I'm really lost and confused and my mind is so scrambled, just like it knows that you died but yet I still find myself waiting for you to come back home.

Ps. I'm sending my love and kisses straight to heaven
Posted by Debby Poorboy on January 1, 2020
Happy New Years in heaven my angel,
Today I thought of you with sadness in my heart. Even though I can listen to your voice everyday saying "I love you babe" it doesn't help. I wish you could come down from heaven to spend one last day with me. I would at least have the chance to hug, kiss say I love you and goodbye before having to let go. I know God won't let you come because he knows I wouldn't let go and I would beg for you to take me with you. I tell myself that every day that goes by is one day closer to us seeing each other again, this gives me the strength to live one more day without you.

Ps, I love and miss you to tears

Happy new year dad ! 2019 was just as hard as 2018 without you. This new way of life isn’t fair and it’s hard without your wisdom and love. I love you to tears and I will always and forever love you. I carry you with me in my heart everyday dad. I miss you so damn much.
Posted by Debby Poorboy on December 26, 2019
Clark this is a late post and should have been wrote yesterday. For that I'm truly sorry, I'm having a really hard time this year and the holidays aren't helping. I still can't except that you are no longer here with me and in heaven. Spending Christmas without you by my side was so sad and empty, Knowing that this is what I have to do the rest of my life is heartbreaking. Someday I'll be with you in heaven and we'll celebrate all the holidays that we've missed together. No matter how much time passes by I miss you everyday. Merry Christmas Babe! You may be gone from my sight, but you are never gone from my heart or mind.

Hello Babe,
That dreadful day has come and gone, the pain of another month spent without you here. The 22nd is like no other, it's also our daughters birthday. She turned 29, you would be so proud of her. We went to eat at one of your favorite seafood places, but of course it was not the same without you there. I'm writing this letter to you up above to say how much I miss you with all my heart and love. No matter how many months that go by, I will never understand why you had to die. I was left here alone with so many tears and sorrow. My days are hard without you here but the nights are harder for me to bare. I know some day I'll see you again, so I will forever hold you close in my heart until then.            

Love and Kisses,

Today isn't a good day for me, I'm thinking about you you being in heaven. I miss you with all my heart. I wish you were here so I could cry on your shoulder and tell ya how much I need you. I would also tell ya how hard every day has been here on earth without you. Then you can tell me that everything and I will be okay, just like you used to babe.

Hello Sweetheart,
Today is Thanksgiving and I'm sending all my love and kisses up to you in heaven. I miss you so much, I still can't believe your gone and I really don't think I ever will. It's been 15 months now and with each passing seconds, minutes, hours, days and months, my life gets harder to cope with. I never knew the true meaning of heartbreak or being lonely till god took you away, not only from me but all who loved you. I can wipe away my tears but the ache in my heart I cannot. Today people around the world will be saying what they are thankful for. I know I should be thankful for a lot of things but my mind is so scrambled I can't even think. The one thing I'm truly grateful for is that you were in my life.
                                                                      
Ps, I love you to tears

Hello my love,
Today the calendar reminds me that you've been in heaven 15 months now. These months are gonna come no matter what like clock work, till it reaches another year of you missing from my life. I miss you more every time I hear someone say your name. I've cried so many tears for you yet my heart is still broken. I miss our times together the things in common we could share. But nothing fills the emptiness in my heart now that you're no longer here. I have so many memories of us to last my whole life through and each one of them reminds me of how much I miss you. Clark you will always be in my heart, because in there you’re still alive. I hope the winds of Heaven blow softly up and whisper in your ear how much I love and miss you babe.

️Hello My Love,
Today is Halloween and again there will be no candy or cupcakes on the counter. I was going to set some out for you, but I couldn't. It hurts to much remembering that smile when you walked through the door. Your eyes would light up and say "You know how I love my sweets Deb". Then you would give me a bear hug and kiss. Babe, what I wouldn't give to have one of those hugs right now. I miss us and life without you here is not the same, it’s a sad and lonely place to be.

Clark,
You've been in heaven fourteen months now and I still dread the 22nd day. For that’s just a reminder of the day you passed away. Since you’ve been gone I’ve needed you a million times. I picture you sitting at the kitchen counter or laying on the couch. Yet wishing you would come through the door saying oh what a horrible day. I know that is impossible and I will hear your voice no more. I know you see my tears and you don’t want me to cry. But my heart is broken because I can’t understand why you had to die. I wear a mask from day to day and try to cope in my own way. Each morning when I wake I know that you are gone and no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on. To keep going since you been gone is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Never have I dealt with anything more difficult than having to face each day without you being in my life. I miss your touch, hugs and kisses but most of all I miss the way you looked at me with your loving eyes. Till death do us part wasn’t long enough, your wings were ready but my heart was not.

Ps, I love you to tears
Posted by Debby Poorboy on October 10, 2019
Clark,
Today we would have been celebrating 39 years together. There are so many things that I didn't get to say. You were gone before I knew it and only god knows why. The moment I was told you passed my heart broke in two. One side filled with heartache the other died with you. I lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep. I take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday. But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. A world that was once full of happiness is now an empty place. I miss the sound of your voice the stories you told, the ring of your laugh and your presence that glowed. What it meant to love you know one will ever know. You were my best friend, my soulmate and lover. Please be at the pearly gates when heaven calls for me. I will run to you with open arms and kiss your smiling face. Then my broken heart will once again be back place.

Hello Babe,
Today is the anniversary of the day I lost you. It’s been 1 year, 12 months, 365 days. lots of hours, minutes, seconds and weeks that have passed. It seems like just a few days ago that I was told you were gone. Your death has reminded me that in this world nothing is permanent and we all have to go when god wishes. I will always miss having you here by my side, no matter how many days, nights or time that goes by. The pain of loosing you is immeasurable. At night when I look up into the sky, I know that the biggest star that is shining the brightest is you. We dreamt of living a long live together, but the dream was shattered when you left me here alone and went to heaven. I have an emptiness inside and it shows in everything I do, it’s something that I sometimes just can’t hide. I simply miss you being here, life is dull and flat without you and nothing is the same. People say I have to start over, but life is not a board game and loosing a loved one is never really starting over. It’s more like “continuing without.” One day we will meet again and everyday until then I will be missing you.                                              
                                                                     
Ps, I love you to tears

Clark,
I meant to post this yesterday but I was really having a rough time. You’ve been gone 11 months and the pain of losing you is still so raw. I got eleven balloons but as I stood out back holding tightly onto the strings my eyes filled up with tears and I didn’t want to release them. I've sent balloons up to heaven every 22nd day of the month since you passed away but for some reason yesterday it felt like I was losing you all over again. I shut my eyes and I could see you looking at me with so much love so I kissed one and let them go. As I looked up to watch them float away, I felt this brisk wind around me. My hope is that you heard me whisper "I love you too babe."                                   
                                                            
Ps, I miss you more than life itself
Posted by Amber Poorboy on July 22, 2019
It’s just one of those nights, where all i can think about is you and how in an instant my world was flipped upside down. I can’t believe it’s been 11 months Dad, 334.8 days without you. My heart hurts just as it did that day if not more, hell If I’m being honest saying life has been hard without you is an understatement. There are no words to describe how hard it is waking up and not being able to do so many things like before: texting you good morning and wishing you a great day, Calling you when I need advice, Pickin on each other and hearing you laugh, or giving you big hugs. I could go on forever. 
I really miss you Dad

Hello my love,
Tonight I write to you with a heavy heart. I'ts been 10 months that you've been gone an I still have not processed it, maybe I just don’t want to. It still feels like yesterday I fell asleep and woke up in this nightmare. It’s like being in a black tunnel and seeing no light at the end. No one may truly never understand how hard Loosing you is, it’s was especially even harder during the first holidays without you here. Your death has taken a mental and emotional toll on my heart, body and mind. This is the hardest journey that I have ever walked, it has taken me to a place where I have sometimes not even been able to manage the simplest things. I may look fine but I’m not, I am however trying every day to be that way. I know that the world keeps going, but just because the world keeps moving, doesn’t mean that I am. I feel lost and helpless and I’m lonelier now than I have ever been in my entire life. With each passing day, my life doesn’t get easier, it gets harder without you here. People don’t seem to realize that my grief and sadness is 24/7 and will possibly even be years down the road. The day you passed away part of me also died, you were my life and I will never be the same person that I was before. I may cut a smile or a laugh once in a while but I’m still empty inside. Trying to process everything that’s happened and carry on is not easy, but I am trying to do the best that I can right now.       
                                                                     
Ps, I miss and love you to tears

I miss your advice, your voice , your hugs. Dad I miss you every second of every minute of every hour of every day always. It don’t matter how much time has passed or will pass because I still feel like it was just yesterday you were taken too soon. I love you so much I wish I would have told you that more when you were here. You’re with me everyday dad but I wish you were here with us. I won’t ever say goodbye but I will see you later. Miss you to tears dad .

Clark,
You've been in heaven 26 months now and I still dread for the 22nd day of each month to approach. To lose someone that I loved so much brings me pain beyond belief. There are no words that anyone can say that will ease that pain, sadness or grief. I've lost someone so close, wonderful and dear to my heart and soul. I think about you everyday and night and wish that you were near but although you have left this world you'll stay within my heart guiding me like an angel even though we are apart. For love is everlasting and so are my memories, I still listen to music loudly but the music that reaches the farthest into heaven is the beating of my Heart!

Your loving wife Debby

On Our Wedding Anniversary

Clark,
Today we would have been celebrating our 40th Anniversary together. Instead I'm alone thinking about our life that once was. I remember the first day I met you, it didn't take long for us to become best friends. Little did I know that we would be together until life's end. I remember our first sunrise our first walk on the beach. The first time you ever held my hand my life completely changed. I remember our first "I love you" and when when we said "I do". I'm so thankful that god was gracious and sent me someone special as you. I remember the day you left me, my heart will never mend. We shared so much happiness in times of yesterday, and to say how much I miss you I could never find a way. I wish with all my heart that you were here with me, and we could share the laughter that there always used to be. Someday I know we'll meet again in another life elsewhere, and those special times we once again will share. 

Luv Ya,
Deb

Hey Babe,

I'm missing you so much and It's been a long two years without you here with me. I still find myself waiting for you to come back home even though I know it's not so. I know your in heaven but If it's true that time's the only thing that's gonna heal my pain, then why hasn't God healed my heart. I wonder, would you be able to answer that question If you were still here. When I'm alone driving I talk to you as if you're sitting right next to me. With every bump I hear you say, Really Deb! I just smile and say Sorry Clark, like I always did. The days are long when I'm alone and I miss our late night till early morning talks. We could talk for hours and never run out of things to say. I miss your laugh your smile and those great hugs, they always made everything better. You were my best friend and I will love you till my dying day.

Ps. You will never ever be forgotten
his Life

The Lyondell/Equistar and Austin Industrial Construction Group played an important role in the installation of a new tower section in the BT unit at the Channelview Equistar site. The construction group's role was to create all lifting plans, coordinate and arrange crane rental, and dismantle all piping and electrical connections, During the initial phases of the BT outage, this project was the critical path for the unit start-up. "This was initially viewed as a difficult project, but it matured into one that, when executed, provided great results"  said Pat Ganster, the Lyondell and Equistar construction coordinator. This project was completed safetly, quickly and cost effectively, indicating the level of commitment on the part of everyone who worked on it. On behalf of the Plant Projects Group, I would like to extend my appreciation and congratulations to all involved in achieving our success with their part in Engineering, planning and Scheduling Craft Construction, Construction Management,  Support Services, and the assistance of the BT Unit personal" Two key Austin employee-owners were cited as being standouts during the execution of the tower replacement - Clark Poorboy, structural/rigging general forman, and Darryl Matherne, general superintendent.
