When I first heard of Clara's illness I was heartsick. Watching you together all these years, I saw your devotion to your faith, community, and to each other. It's a marvelous thing to be able to share your life with someone you love.
You have been blessed to have Clara these past years and have been handed a raw deal to lose her too soon.
You and your children are in my prayers. May you heal fully without resentment, and with a new understanding of the mysterious ways God gives and takes.
When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
