    Claire was special to our family; even though she didn't have all the pleasures and opportunities that a normal life would hold, she loved people, especially the staff at Envoy and the patients she befriended there. In lieu of flowers, Claire would have preferred that you donate to your local humane society or animal shelter. Rich Scherer and Beth Morgan

    I pray that the promise of the resurrection Jesus Christ made at John 5: 28 and 29, and repeated by the Apostle Paul at Acts 24: 15, be a source of comfort to you during this sad time. Take comfort in the promise of a time where there will be no more pain and sorrow, recorded at Revelation 21: 3 and 4.
