Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Friends of Clara, Clara was a delightful woman! She and Fred were great neighbors/friends to my mother, Rosemary Williams. Rose passed away 7 years ago on September 14. Clara was intelligent, funny, witty, and always has wisdom to share. She was an inspiration to me. I always liked to hear about her nursing adventures. She truly loved Fred, and she missed him dearly. I hope they are reunited in heaven. Many blessings, Clara. We hope to see you one day again. Barbie and Gary
