I am very sad about the passing of Clara. I used to enjoy chatting with her when I used to bicycle past her house. She always took the time to say Hi.

Clara was a unique personality and I liked to visit with her. She liked playing cards. She liked to take her time to eat. She loved her daughter whom she called Janey. When asked that she was the best dancer in Bristol High Class of 1949, she said that was a long time ago. She remembered that Robin, CNA had 4 children and Cathy her CNA said, I will miss her dearly. She liked going outside to our courtyard on the unit. She would come to bingo if Randy, the CNA was on duty as she really liked him. God Bless. Sharon, Robin and Cathy.
