SUNDAYLIVES PROJECT…DO NOT USE. Clare Tinknell, 87, a resident at Clark Retirement Community, gets a hug from his daughter, Susie Smith, of Grandville beneath a row of pictures of his grandchildren at the end of a visit on Sunday, August 7. “I wrote on my dad’s Father’s Day card that I will be forever grateful for the last decade that they’ve given us,” Smith said. Tinknell and his wife, Barbara, 85, moved into the retirement community last March from Romeo. They are often visited by Smith and her husband Wayne.
