Deepest sympathy and condolences to the Clarke family. Aunt Eileen will not soon be forgotten by anyone who knew this fiercely independent woman. So sorry we can’t be there to pay our respect and provide support. Greg and Kim Perchard

Donna (and family),
I know you are still in shock from the sudden passing of your mother. Our mother’s death is the one that we are never prepared for . She is the closest person to us from birth. She has loved you for a lifetime.
Now is the time to take that love and plant it deeply in your heart. Then let it grow in you with branches that reach out and embrace others. Show those around you how you were cherished by cherishing them. Her legacy will live on through you and your children .
I am praying that you will feel the loving arms of our heavenly Father surrounding you as you mourn your loss and that you seek His face when you need to be lifted up.
It is hard to be in Nova Scotia right now when I would love to be there to hug you.
