Clara used to babysit for us when we were growing up, and I have many fond memories of those days. She was a wonderful neighbor who will be sorely missed.

Aunt Clara, I am glad that I was able to visit with you and Uncle Donnie when I came home over the holidays. Thank you for coming on a cold night to enjoy a nice warm meal.
