Dear Shoshana ~ I was so sad to learn of your mom's passing. Our visits at the credit union meant afternoon chats I truly looked forward to. Such a warm, sweet, gentle woman. I will remember her for her quiet humor and the great conversations we had about different cultures, life, family, and what an absolute pain it was to have a roof replaced. Clara was a jewel. Peace to you and your family.
