Joe, Tami, Connor and Patrick,

I can&t begin to express my sadness at your loss and at the loss to our whole family. Over the years I have listened with great pleasure and laughter at the exploits of Miss Claire as told to me by Nana and Meggy, and Mary, and many others. She held a very special place in all our hearts and will be sorely missed.

I know that you all will be surrounded by your many loved ones, both family and dear friends, and I hope that in your shared sorrow will also find shared comfort.

I love you all....Kevin

To the family:
All of you are certainly in my prayers during this time. I know your faith is strong and that is what will get you through this. I came by the hospital Wednesday afternoon to see how things were, but I was too late, all of you had left.

So now we pray that Claire may be enjoying the everlasting joy that comes with being in God&s Kingdom and that all of you may find strength and consolation through the power that comes from God.

God bless you all,
Fr. Kenneth Taylor

I don&t know what I can possibly say to help you feel better at a moment like this. The only words of comfort that I can possibly try to give are that, while it&s so hard and so painful to bear, she is in a better place. She is with God, now. I&m so sorry for your loss.
