Clare and Bella on an evening stroll
Last updated 7 September 2008
Clare Lillian Dodson
A dear friend, Clare Dodson, died September 6, 2008 after a long and
courageous battle with cancer.
I had the opportunity to
go out to San Diego and visit with her only last month.
The picture above was taken July 25, 2008, on the Oceanview Harbor waterfront.
We had gone for an evening stroll with her dear little dog Bella.
You can see her in various places on this page:

Dot used to work there at the Gold Hill Inn, and Rachel was working there
this Summer at a Mountain Camp nearby. A good time was had by all. Investigating

aspect of all this.
Ruth sent some more hard copy pix which I will scan and post.
