“I first met Clara when she and my mom worked together at Neisner's... the two of them helped me pick out the fabric when I made my dress for Jr. Prom. Such a sweet memory! Whenever our paths crossed in years since then, Clara always made me feel like she was delighted to see me. What a great lady with a warm, welcoming smile! My sympathy to you!”
