Bill and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Clela is a beautiful lady and has meant very much to me and many others. We will see her again in Heaven I know!
Bill, if I make it to Guthrie, I plan to stop and see you! I pray Lavada is with you now! I would love to see her.

You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless You!

Clela always had a smile and was such a sweet aunt to me and my siblings. She will be dearly missed by all. May she rest in peace now.
