Dear Raaum family, especially Gus, Chris, LuAnn, whom I knew while at Big Sky, and Dave.
As you all know, Your Mom was an elegant lady to say the least. Though not the celebrity at Big Sky, Claire added her special elegance and stature to all those who met her, even if the time spent in her presence was short. Luckily for many of us, we had many occasions to be with her and enjoy her company.
My last visit with her was a few years ago at the Raaum cabin on Puget Sound . . . she had been swimming in that cold water earlier that day. No wonder she looked GREAT.
We all will miss that great Lady. . . her humor was quite special as well.
