    i was driving down Canyon Rd.the day of her accident. I was 15 minutes late in seeing what accually happend. The next day i was on my way to work and seen Clara’s name on a cross. My heart hurt for the family’s loss. It wasn’t till today that I had a face to the name. Last night my fiance’ and I went to a high school football game between the braves and Spanaway. There was a silence for a brief moment, and didn’t here why. Until today I turned on my laptop and the Tacoma News Tribune was on my pc and there was the memorial and the face of Clara Vallone. I some how feel a closeness with no reason at all. I think about her and her family everyday since her accident. I felt the need to post this and the events that led up to seeing her picture. If There is anything I can do at all please contact me by email. I feel a great connection and not sure why. My prayers and thoughts are always on my mind. I will continue to pray for Clara and her family. May I meet her some day in Heaven Amen.

    God Bless,
