Aunt Clara was a Proverb 31 woman.
She has always been a true example of God's love. I never saw her without a smile or a hug for those in her mist.
She always made me feel as if I was one of the nieces that she was over whelmed to hear from. I will always treasure the moments we laughed, talked and spent together in heart and in spirit....forever loved...niece: Cheryl
