Wish I could give my condolences in person but saw the obituary too late. Tom I know how much you loved and honored your Mom and she adored you. Gloria you were a wonderful daughter to Alma, I know it was by marriage but she treasured you. I witnessed the strong bond and dedication you all had for each other.
Now she can watch her beloved baseball from the perfect seat. May she rest in peace and you keep her memories alive in your hearts.

I will always remember Ms. Clardy when she and Ennis would bring their home grown tomatoes and shelled pecans to the SWBT unit in Austin. They were the best that I have ever eaten. I was an operator at the time. She was a dear sweet lady and will be missed dearly by those who loved her. Condolences to the family for the loss of your family member.

What a reunion in Heaven. She was always cheerful and loved you all so much. She was a prayer warrior I could always depend upon. How blessed we were to have her in our lives. Linda and Larry Schievelbein
