Hi Cousins and Uncle Jake, The Funeral yesterday was wonderful and a great tribute to your special wife, mother, grandmother and the rest of her extended family. I loved Klea so much. She always took care of our needs when we were young. I remember wanting a Jantzen sweater set when I was a teenager as it was the in thing. My parents had very little money so Aunt Klea bought one for me. I was so excited, but, woe is me, I found I was allergic to wool so was never able to wear it again. She is also the one who encouraged me to shave my "gorilla legs" because everyone laughed at me when we had gym programs. My Mom was not happy about it but Klea explained how important it was for me to feel as much like the other girls my age. She was a great inspiration to me and I pass by her old home in Riverdale every other week on my Avon deliveries and think how much I loved her and how welcoming she was to a poor shy teenager. I love you all. God bless you always! Love, Marilyn

Aunt Klea will be missed. She was so good to my mother (Terry) and Uncle Boyd after their mother passed at a young age. As such, she was more of a grandmother to me than a great-aunt. She always sent a birthday card with a $2 bill when we were growing up, and she never missed one. She was so loving and always welcoming with a smile. I loved hearing of her latest travels. She was one who loved life with determination and didn't just wait for things to happen. It is sad to lose her, but I know my grandparents were both waiting to welcome her to the next stage of eternity. All my love to the family.
