Mrs. Clara was a dutiful usher. "Some ushers make more noise than the entrants".
Mrs. Clara tipped through the sanctuary making indication that it was a place of worship. Faithful, Diligent, and Friendly depicted her character.
Psalms 84:10 What a statement: "David said he'd rather be a doorkeeper in the house of God;than to dwell in the tents of wickedness."
"When I heard of Mrs. Clara's homegoing, I could imagine her singing, Good Bye World, I stay no longer with you".
