So sorry for your loss. Clarabelle was a wonderful woman and I always looked forward to seeing her. I would see her almost daily when she checked in on her sister Mary. She was a saint who helped teach me to play bridge along with Larry Appleby. I think of her often and will miss her.

Mary Jane,
I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. Your mom had the best laugh, I can hear her now. She sold me my swim card every year at the village office, so I could swim countless hours with my friends at the park pool.

She was my Dads secretary for years when he was the superintendent of the public works. Dad called me yesterday very upset, he said to pass his condolences to the family, as he is in NC for the winter.

I am truly sorry for your loss. 💔
