I clicked on the obituaries this morning to see that Ms. Clara's daughter had died. Ms. Clara was our faithful sitter when the kids were small. Her daughter was 50 and her death was unexpected. She was at work on Friday. Her husband died years ago, and she leaves behind a son who is in the Navy and a daughter who is still in high school. So sad. At the funeral home, though, it was good to reconnect with people we hadn't seen in a while - parents and kids who were also at Ms. Clara's when we were. Clara said to tell the boys that she is watching them when they altar serve!
