What a loss to our family! One of my best summer´s was when I spent time in Iowa. I stayed with Sister, and she even was going to allow me to stay and go to school in Iowa. What an amazing woman, she kept playing the song "She´s got Papers on me". I thought what a woman, listening to a song that empowered women to not take any mess from a man. May God bless and strengthen the Hardy, Clinton and Creer family. Angie

Becky, Nesha, Diane and all the Clinton `s I am sadden to hear the passing of Sister. My mother and her was cousins/friends. Whenever we met up for family gatherings, one of the first we would say is where is Sister. We were always so excited to see her. It was mutual with her. She is now in the presence of the Lord. She will be missed, but remember who your Shepherd is during this difficult time and days ahead 23rd PSALMS Love Always
