Jeffrey, Gary, and Marsha, Gale and I are so sad to hear about your mom. She was always such a sweet person. We loved seeing her at Cosby Church. I have talked with her many times about the Clymers. My third great grandfather was John Wright Clymer. He was Clara's second great grandfather. Our best wishes, prayers and condolences.
