To Don, Brian and Grandchildren,

I was sorry to hear about the passing of Clara Jane.
I can remember the times she came to Cordele for the summer and stayed with Aunt Stella.
Although, we cannot be there with you in person, our hearts and prayers are with you through this difficult time.
I pray that God will give you peace in your hearts that passes all understanding.

Margaret Ray Holt
