I have good memories of Mrs. Channenson--having spent a lot of time with Cyndy and friends in the basement. I was in high school then and Steven was a toddler we all dotted over. Mrs. Channenson would come down to join us and we would talk. She made us all feel special. May her memory be for a blessing.

Claire was such a lovely person inside and out. Always happy and had the best advice for life. I will miss her cheerful face when I would see her at the dental office in my chair. She was one of a kind for sure!
