Family Story

Bruno Mauer went to elementary school with my father Robert Clements in Staten Island, New York in the 1920’s. He became our surrogate Dad when our father was too ill to care for me and my 3 sisters and full-time working Mom. He cooked his chicken soup to nourish and warm us up in our old 1899 cold and drafty Port Richmond home. He came to our Little League games, took us to the South Beach Rides, asked us about our school and friends and thoughts, and did everything my father couldn’t. He never told us he loved us but his soup did.
