I loved Claire like a Mother. She was my Mother in Law and she always made me feel warm, welcome and loved.
She came to visit us in Maine when we started our business. She was always willing and eager to be of service. She had experience in a bakery when she was young and she enjoyed helping out with baking, frosting and decorating the cookies. We always had a great time and laughter was always in the air when we were together.
She will live in my heart forever and I will always remember her fondly.

Claire always had a smile. She never forgave me, her younger brother, for taking her place as the baby of the family.. I will miss her. Condolences to her family.

I’ve only known Claire for a short time but will always hold her deep in my heart. We used to go for lunch dates. Diane and her and me and my mother in law. We would always enjoy a sangria together. (Or 2). We shared stories and laughter. I will cherish those memories forever. ❤️
