Such wonderful memories of Bill and Clem and St. Bonaventure Church. They were so very kind and supportive of their friends and children and I will always be very thankful for having been a part of their lives. The world is a poorer place with the loss of Clem.

I only was privileged to meet Aunt Clem twice with Ann; once in Butler, PA when she came to visit her sister NAncy and we all went to the football game. I have a great picture of the two sisters up in the skybox. The second was when Ann and I went to Annapolis two years ago and stayed with Liz.
Aunt Clem was a beautiful woman inside and out. I loved her sense of humor and I loved our time together eating mint chocolate Klonike bars.
My prayers go out to all of you to have peace in your hearts and strength in the coming days months and years missing her. All my love. Michele (Ann's sister)
