Thank you for being a great friend. Piano duets with you were the greatest.

All year long, as I journeyed, I told people how I was coming back to St. Louis for Thanksgiving, "to serve with Clare one more time" at the Center for Spiritual Living's welcome table. I neglected to remind Clare to wait for me.... Travel the next roads in peace and power, dear woman. You are missed in this form. I will always remember you and what is remembered, lives.

I met Clara at Monsanto while working together. She was always so inspiring and a very caring individual. I enjoyed our conversations, and I had a wonderful lunch with her last year. She was the same happy and considerate person she has always been. Clare was that person who always reached out to others in their time of need. She will be missed. I send my deepest sympathy to Tony and her family.
