Michael and I struggled for a few days after Clara’s benefit trying to find the words that could express just exactly how we were feeling — and we still are struggling because the love and support we were shown at Clara’s benefit means the world to us.

After getting home from the benefit, I held Clara in my arms with tears in my eyes because I couldn’t comprehend what had just happened. God entrusted sweet, beautiful Clara to Michael and myself, and I fully believe he did so knowing she had all of you as well. Although this is not enough for what you have given, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
