I really don't know what to say but I remember when we were in the band room together telling each other what we want to do in our future but I wish you were still here every night I feel like it was my fault for leaving I told you I would help me with your emotional support but I got grounded so I couldn't really talk to you I found out you were dead December 13th I miss you Claire if I see you again I'd be happy" God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference "

We never knew Claire and live in Wichita, KS. We read Fr Antony's facebook page of homilies and learned about Claire. Know that people are praying for Claire and her family that never knew her. She sounds like she was a beautiful and talented 8th grader that will be dearly missed. We will continue to keep her and her family in our prayers through this difficult holiday season.

“I do not know the family but what a beautiful girl. I post to send only my prayers to the family as I also lost my 14 year old son, he passed away December 4th 2018...I know the unimaginable pain the family is feeling...all the reviews of memories...and unanswered questions. May God comfort you and remind you as he so often does ...even when we do not understand...we must remain faithful.
Bless you.
Jadens mama Nicole”

In my mind, Claire bear will always be a 7 year old Becker Bunch kid. Those big blue eyes and sweet smile will always be the first things I remember about her. I loved the way she loved Ben, and the way she absolutely bloomed when she was on stage dancing. She was so kind, compassionate, and empathetic. Lifting you all up in prayer and asking God to wrap His loving arms around you.

May God shed His Mercy on her, and grant you the comfort knowing the love you have for her in your hearts.

Our sincere condolences
