Missy and Family, I remember Clare as a funny and spunky child who radiated much joy and enthusiasm. It is both tragic and upsetting to learn of her suffering, yet not at all surprising to me that she continued fighting right up to the end. Sorry for your loss. Rest in peace, Little Clare.

I would like to give my sincere condolences to Clare's entire family. I am truly saddened to here of Clare's passing. I first met Clare at KeyBank in the Elkhart Downtown office. She would come in daily to make the business deposits. The one thing that Clare did for me was make me laugh every time that I saw her. I will miss her many stories and the laughter that she brought to the office every time that she would stop in. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel. Blessings to all of her family.
