  1. It has been my pleasure and honor to know Clara for the past three years while working at Hickory Glen, where she lived. She always had a smile and a hug for me and the time I spent talking with her was almost always the high point of my day. She always told me that she felt as though she was surrounded by angels. I hope that she’s one of mine now.
