From grief, comes cookies for Pfc. Clark's funeral


NEW LONDON -- Hundreds of chocolate chip cookies, a childhood favorite of U.S. Army Pfc. Ryane Clark, are being baked by church and community volunteers all around the New London area this week.

By Tuesday, at least 2,500 cookies had been promised by a large network of community residents who grieve the fact that the cookies need to be made, but are eager to be able to do something to show their respect for Clark and support for his family.
