May the Lord Jesus Christ provide you with his comfort in this time of your grief.  We at Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community were privileged to serve Clara.  I’m sorry that I will not be available to attend the service for your dear Clara.  
With our prayers for you,
Chaplain Steve

To say Clara will be missed does not seem like enough,  She provided alot of laughter and love through out the years I was privileged to have know her. She became the "Grandmother" I lost many years ago.  I will miss her.
