I too will miss her sweet voice singing while I played the piano at Ross Memorial every other Friday. She knew all the songs and could hit those "high" notes that I always challenged her with. We'll be singing her favorites this coming Friday in her loving memory. I am blessed to have known such a "special lady". May God continue to watch over her family.

Ms. Clara was such a sweet lady! She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She loved singing each Tuesday morning during our services at Ross Memorial, and had several favorite songs. Each time we sing those will bring fond memories of Ms. Clara. We pray the Lord will give you comfort during the loss of your loved one. We know where she is and we look forward to seeing here once again!
