Teri Lynn Gray says:

David, Peggy and the rest of the family. I am so saddened for the sudden loss of sweet Aunt Clara but proud she did not have to suffer.
She was such a beautiful lady inside and out. Will forever cherish the memories of visiting her and seeing that sweet gentle smile.
Heaven has truly received an angel.
Gone but never forgotten.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

David, Donna and Peggy, and all the rest of the family that Aunt Clara leaves behind, I am so sorry to hear that my precious Aunt has passed on. I can't tell you how great full I am to our Lord and Savior that He arranged so that Mama and I got to visit with her on Thursday. I am a firm believer that God puts us where we need to be when we need to be there, otherwise we would not have got see her. I want to let you know that we will be praying for the family.
GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL, Ann, Robert, Buddy, Karin and family and Mama.
