Dear Jack, Jeffrey, Julie, Joel, Michelle and Jodie,

I am so sorry to learn of the sad news. No words can fully capture the generosity and love that Claire had for everyone. Claire was also like a Mom to me.

I know that you are all hanging in there and supporting each other through this difficult time. I send you all my very best.

Dear Jack & family.
Here's 2 old Beavers who are truly sad for your loss of lovely Claire. Although we didn't know her well, her reputation was of a lovely wife, mother & grandmother. We both know of the trials of being a coach's wife...all the ups & downs of dealing with fans, players & a grouchy husband after losses. Our memories of her are of a cheerful, smiling lady inspite of all the drama going on.
Take care, old friend, we know you have some rough times ahead, but let your friends, family & all those grandchildren spoil you a little. Call us if you want to talk

Jack and Family,

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember her amazing smile and the way she made everyone in the room feel heard, understood and accepted. What a gift she was to all who had the pleasure. (And Julie, she was one smart lady! She was right about investments and IRAs).

Blessings and comfort to you all.

Claire was one of the neatest people I have met. The sweetest of personalities, she brightened every room she entered! I will miss her dearly. My condolances to your entire family.
