Rest in peace, dear Claire. I am so grateful for all of our chats. I will miss your delightful sense of humor, especially at the expense of your son-in-law! By the way, someone I know who is also a Disney enthusiast like you is nearby. Look her up and enjoy the ride together!
May the angels lead you into paradise, may the martyrs greet you at your arrival, and lead you into the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem.

I hadn't laughed till I choked so much since college, then I met you and Papa. From the 20-pound coat box of J.Pace salami & cheese under the Christmas tree, to baking, making ravioli, Easter clothes shopping trips with 4 grandies, sledding down the down of the house in Stoneham, and planting in spring... moments and memories to cherish.

Miss you Mum.

I will always remember Your Mom as being, kind, friendly and full of life. Our Moms were friends, way back when we grew up on Pearl Street. May memories warm your hearts and bring a smile.....God Bless All of You during the difficult days ahead.
