I am so saddened of the passing of my "Auntie" Claire. She was such a wonderful person. I spent 3 summers with her, my Uncle and cousins and have so many happy memories of those times. They then opened there home to me when I was having a hard time finding work and to help me get a new start but I eventually moved back home. She was always such a kindhearted person that also made you laugh. I will miss you terribly but I leave you in the comfort of knowing that you no longer are suffering and are with your husband and your 3 brothers.

My favorite memories of my Aunt Claire were any and all, that had to do with her laughing. She had the best laugh. It was loud, joyous, and distinctive. Her laugh made me smile every time I heard it. I will remember her fondly and with love. My most sincere condolences to everyone that loves her. May she rest in peace.
