I have such fond memories of Aunt Claire - it's hard to know where to begin. Holidays and Summers together were so memorable. She encouraged fun and creativity.
Loved my summers with my cousin, Valerie playing Barbies and hanging at the pool. Aunt Claire use to make clothes and furniture for our dolls and would give us money for penny candy at the 7-11.
Our Wildwood vacations were always great - beach and boardwalk until we couldn't stay awake.
Fondue nights were fun too . . . . . especially the fruit balls in the flaming rum!
I remember her smile and laugh and the way she reminded me of Pop.
We shared a love for painting - I have kept all the painting tips she mailed to me. She was one of my favorite artists.
She will be forever loved and missed

I remember the summer weeks spent at Aunt Claire's with Valerie and Paula - swimming, playing Barbies...Aunt Claire teaching us how to play Hearts. I will never forget her laugh - so full of life!
