My sympathies go out to the Brouillette-Windler Familes. I did not personally know Miss Claire but I new Jack well and went to school with their children. I also know Miss Claire&s sister Janet Metzinger very well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this troubling time. My hope for your family is to find strength in your beautiful memories. Life is the most precious gift of all and may we all remember to enjoy it. Too many times we get to wrapped in in making a living and we forget to make a life.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Claire. She was a wonderful person who I have many memories of from my younger days. Babysiting for her children when I was in high school, visiting at family reunions, weddings, and church dinners. She was always so kind, friendly,and had such a beautiful smile. I know she will be missed but hope you are able to take comfort in your memories of her.

Claire was one on my nearest and dearest friends for many years. We worked together in the political science dept. at Purdue for approx. ten years. Then after she retired, we&d get together for lunches and just have lots of laughs. She was a beautiful person, inside and out and I&ll always cherish those precious memories I have of her.
