Our deepest condolences to Clara's family. Clara was a dear neighbor of ours. When our kids would ride their bikes past her home she very often stopped them to give them a treat! In the summer, not a day would go by that Clara wasn't out in her yard tending her flowers. Always so beautiful. When we would stop to chat, she very often talked of her grandchildren and how proud she was of them. And, I'll never forget her kindness when I was ill, baking brownies and checking in on me. Clara, may you rest in peace and may His Perpetual Light shine upon you. Paul and Kathy Patrick

My dear Clara, I met you while driving for Meals on Wheels, your sweetness was so endearing, I looked forward to seeing you each morning with your warm smile. I'm sure your family will miss you very much as you were a very special person. Until we meet again. Joy
