To Mark, Larry, Janet, Lucille and your family. I am so so sorry to hear of Aunt Claire's passing. Your mom was the most caring and loving lady. I remember spending time with your family on the 4th and many Thanksgivings. Your mom was the sweetest and most welcoming and I remember always enjoying time with all of you. She was so loving and supportive when my mom was ill. I will always smile when I think of her. Please know that we are thinking of all of you as gather together. I pray for your peace and comfort as Aunt Claire rests in Heaven in the arms of our Savior.

Cousins Mark, Larry, Janet and Lucy, as I think about what to say other than the obvious, memories come to mind about our childhood. It was always fun coming to your house as your Mom (and Dad) were so loving and funny! I can still hear your Mom laughing. May she rest in peace with the family, Teresa
