I first remember auntie Clara when my second mama, (my dad and mom had both lost their first spouses to young deaths) had gotten in a car accident 3 months after she married my dad and was babysitting me when my mom came home from the hospital. She was trying to get me to come 'out of hiding' I was 'shy' of my new mama coming home from the hospital. And Clara I realized now was only 21 years old, smiling at me. I was happy to 'enjoy her a few times' after we saw her in the Copper Country. We always had nice visits. Now all her trials are over.
