Ms Clara was a very special lady to me . She became my mom when my own mother passed away several years ago . She was a wonderful lady who found humor in everything . She could keep you laughing over the craziest stuff . We had so many great times together . I wish I had had more time to spend with her. Ms Clara never had an enemy , she enjoyed being with people . She absolutely loved birthdays and Christmas . I am going to miss her so much . I will see her again someday !! Love you second mom !!

Ms. Clara was one of the sweetest women, I have ever had the pleasure to know. Every time I knew I would see her, I knew we would have a delightful conversation, and every time we did. Ms. Clara was undoubtedly one of the happiest people, and her joy was contagious to everyone she came in contact with. I will miss her so very much, but I know that she is now in the presence of our Lord and Savior, and I am absolutely grateful for that, and the opportunity to see her again.

Condolence from Terry & Emily Strassel on October 19th, 2020 5:36 pm

Love the picture, it’s like we look up to heaven and she’s looking down on us smiling, happy to see us.

Emily & I will truly miss her. She was wonderful to us & am extended grandmom to Emily.

Emily so wanted to surprise Clara next year by walking into your house wearing her cap & gown but now Clara can now be at her graduation in spirit.

Love you Clara, rest in peace.

Heaven is richer with the arrival of Miss Clara. She was such a sweet and energetic lady. I’ve not seen her in better than 10 years. I often dropped her at her home after services at New Life. My prayers are with her children and family. I know the pain of your loss but rejoice at the joy of her home going!

My condolences to the family of Clara Thomas. May the Lord bring you peace in knowing, she is in a better place. I love Clara very much. She was a sweet wonderful person. I enjoyed our little outing. She loved going to El Parian, eating her plate “Speedy Gonzales”, but didn’t like avocado dip. When I ordered the dip she would say “Cover it, please”. I will miss her very much but, someday I will see her in Heaven.
