Claire was a very caring friend who definately loved animals and people. She absolutely loved her dear Earl as she spoke lovingly of him often and spoke of his love for her when she would get sick or end in the hospital. I will miss you Miss Claire. I will miss your laugh and your calls. You made a difference in the lives of those you touched, whether human or animal. God go with you my friend and send the comforter to your Earl. RIP. Debbie and Lena. (The sisters down the road).
