Mom (Helen), Aunt Lucille and I tried to visit Clara Jane in March when I was home. Mom just had to see her but she wasn't there. Mom knew in her heart that her cousin had gone to heaven. She called Clara Jane's friend and called me to tell me of her passing. We are so sorry for your loss. This is a picture when we visited her last.
