THE PRECIOUS LIFE

Her life to God was precious, as in Psalm 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servant". Clara was one of his faithful servants, who served God in gratitude for His deliverance, who called His name, who honored the words she spoke before Him and she had a relationship with Him.

I will miss her cheerful smile and warm greetings every time I visited Willow Tree. She would remind me of something Rob and Annie Mae had said or done in my early life , meaning she was there in the beginning of mine, giving me courage and a foundation. I will miss that conversation because of the connection to Mon and Dad.

Family cherish the memories and each season God gave her to you.

I wish to convey my deepest sympathy of the transition our friend, Clara Ruth. Her life to me was an expression of joy, peace and happiness.

Prayerfully,

Barbara Avery Mallett
