I haven't seen Miss Claire in many years, but when I did see her, she always greeted me warmly. Miss Claire will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Try to take comfort in the fact that she is with our LORD and SAVIOR..

Carol, I didn't know your mother, but knowing YOU makes it obvious she was a loving, caring woman who taught you well. We are so sorry you have to go through this, but we are very grateful you have a wonderful family to help you and offer support. We love you and we know that God has welcomed your mother into His kingdom. God bless you...and her. Aunt Jackie and Uncle Don
