Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts!
We will miss our precious Aunt Clara that always had a big smile for us!

"There is a garden in my heart where happy memories grow
of those who mean the most to me, as the seasons come and go.
But among the fairest flowers that there could ever be
is the memory of my dear aunt, and all she meant to me."
We were blessed to have Aunt Clara in our lives. Rest in peace, Aunt Clara.

Diane and David Bell

Lots of great memories of Aunt Clara. She's walking down "Clara's Lane" now making sure everything is just right.
