    Dennis Clarke has passed away.

    He had been living in Florida after suffering a number of strokes.

    I found this link to one of Marty's articles talking about a "Dennis Clark" (without the e at the end) but I think it's the same guy(?)

    If it is the same one, this article gives a lot more background, for those who didn't know of him. At any rate, may he RIP.

    Pretty much sure its the same fellow WildKat, would make sense given his failing health back in 2010-2011. Curiosity got the better of me and I read through that whole old post. Almost painful it was.
    Seems to me that he is yet another stalwart CoS supporter who gives their everything for the cult, gets sick/health issues, then thrown under the bus/neglected/abandoned and left to their own devices, little doubt that because he is broke~ 'No more use for you!'
    No shit, we have witnessed this time and time again.
    Scientology retirement plan? "Just fucking die you poor sucker!" seems the usual routine.
    If he had had some sort of pension I have a feeling they'd have pulled him back into their web of deceit and get him into the clutches of one of their purported 'care facilities', a horrifically frightening prospect for any human in my honest opinion, where he could be bled to the very last drop. It is one thing the cult has indeed been successful at, milking the cows to death.

    'Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.'

    I lean towards Atheism from the land of being agnostic.

    Does the RIP perhaps come from the Apocatastasis? If so I can join you in the RIP.

    But perhaps Purgatory in the common usage "...The word Purgatory has come to refer also to a wide range of historical and modern conceptions of postmortem suffering short of everlasting damnation,[6] and is used, in a non-specific sense, to mean any place or condition of suffering or torment, especially one that is temporary.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory is what also comes to mind.

    All that aside, Dennis's life provides evidence of so many lives gone down the wrong road, betrayed in promise and result by hubbard and other sociopaths.

    Desiderata.

    I've seen a number of senior Scientologists, both in age and in status, end the same way as Dennis. Senility is very common, and I think that has a lot to do with the "severe reality adjustment" that comes when it dawns on them that not only are they not going OT, but they are simply aging and getting the usual diseases as mere "wogs" .....but without the ordinary family and financial supports enjoyed by those same wogs.

    I think this sudden realization can be quite devastating. I saw it happen to several OT VIIIs.

    They gave fortunes (and sometimes families) to the cult, and there is nothing (or little) left to support them in their waning years.

    And the cult doesn't care...it sees them as downstat, PTS, an embarrassment, to be shunned.

    For anyone lurking, it's never too late to get out.

    In Mike's blog, someone posted a link to the GoFundMe page by his son for contributions to the funeral costs.

    I recognize some of the donors' names.

    Yep, quite a few recognizable names there. And that was a very moving tribute from his son.

    Interesting to compare the tribute with the backstory on the link posted above to Marty's blog.
