    Dear John and Juanita. I am so sorry to read of Clarines passing. I have meant to stop by and see all of you again or call. You know that I cared a lot for Clarine. She always was interesting to be around with her colorful personality. I will pray that your hearts will ease soon from the loss. Bonnie
