Clarence alumna ('08) Amber Graf was killed in a car accident July 20, 2009, along with good friend Sarah Jo Breslin.
The Honsberger family, of which Amber is a member, has seemingly always been part of Clarence Center. Her untimely death slices across the generations of the Town of Clarence and many will come together in this time of tragedy, all with great sadness in their hearts.
The sudden loss of anyone's child makes all parents wish to hold their children forever to keep them safe. It hurts even more so when it's the child of a friend. Much heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and friends. Rest in Peace Amber.
