"My husband Jerry, had her as an English teacher at West HS. We have had the opportunity to get to know her on a personal level, at the WHS dinner get togethers the last couple years, the most recent for the Christmas gathering. We will miss her presence."
"You were and always will be a dear friend. All the trips to Massachusetts looking for relatives trying new restaurants while traveling. We had such a good time. I keep waiting for our daily phone conversations even knowing that it won't happen. She loved the last family gathering and spoke about it so often. I miss you Claire. Love you."
