My favorite memory of my Aunt Claire is when we had gone down to the lake near their home. Claire took my puppy, Blossom, and bounded into the water with her! They had such a fun time. I express my deepest sympathy to my uncle, Johnny, and the rest of Claire's family. While I cannot be there for the services, I will be thinking about her on that day. Sending love from the Coppola Family.

Doing Clair’s hair, she loved to get her hair done and talk about all the new makeup and styling tips we would share.
I’m going to miss her coming to the salon.
She was a really nice person. My love and prayers go out to all her family and friends.❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻
