    My thoughts and prayers for your family during this difficult time. Clo worked with my dad at American Driver Service (Jim Roberts). She always had a smile on her face and was so kind to everyone. So sorry for your loss!

    Clo was a special friend of mine for many years. She and your dad raised a wonderful family! We discovered we were born 8 days apart so had a lot in common. Enjoy your priceless memories, I sure will! My prayers and love to all.

    So sorry for your loss. I’ve thought of her often as she trained me to be a sacristan at Moq. She was such a kind lady.

    We are so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of working with your mom at WW. I will always remember her bragging to me that she would always be older than I am. Blessings to her terrific children.
