My husband and I send our deepest condolences to Clara’s Family. Clara as many would relate to, was a Wonderful Caregiver for our GD a few years ago.

My thoughts are with the family. Clara supported early on my interest in music - part of the Home & School Association audience for one of my first gigs - and later she invited me to fill in on organ at the United Church. Fond memories. She moved mountains.

Growing up in Foley in the '60's and '70's, most of us "kids" were impacted by the community spirit displayed by both Clara and Dan. In our house, there was always that special connection on March 4 as Clara and our Mom shared a birthday (10 years apart!). Our condolences to Clara's family.

May you Rest In Peace Clara. When I look up at the sky at night I will look for the brightest shining star and I will know it’s you looking down on us. I will surely miss you :(
