Mrs. Clara was the sweetest person I ever met. When I would spend the night at her house she treated me as one of her own. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel.

Love is unconditional and Clara was the definition of that. She loved family and always made everyone feel as though they were loved and appreciated. Heaven has a new angel!!!

Anytime we would go to visit Maw Maw Clara she would always make my favorite mashed potatoes and there was never a shortage of cake cookies or candy. She was so loving and giving to everyone. Without fail we always were given photos and albums to look at of us as children and she was overjoyed to see us whether it was for a minute or a day, no time was ever not savored.
Our favorite thing to do when I was little was to go to Lafreniere park to feed the ducks. I will always remember all the love she gave to us and pray for the comfort of our family to know that she is at peace with our God and all of our family who has left before us. Give a kiss to Sadie Marie Maw Maw πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•πŸ’•
We are far away living abroad and sadly not there to comfort our family but we love you all very much.

All our love,

Jennifer and Liam πŸ’•
