    I am so sorry for the lost of a dear friend that from the moment we meet I know she was filled with love of Christ. She was a kind soft spoken and loving person and words can not express my sadness of her departure but, one day I know I will see Clarinda again and this time we will be in the percents of God and all his other Angels. I will miss you Clarinda

    I was looking for an obituary of a friend of my mother’s. Then I came across Clarinda’s obituary. I had to look at it for a few seconds because I thought I was seeing things. I had no idea she had gone home to Heaven.

    I met Clarinda back in the 1990’s when she worked at TJMaxx with my former roommate Yolanda Sellers (also gone home to Heaven). She has always been so nice and had a good sense of humor. I am so sad that I just found this out. My condolences to the entire family.
