To Fran, Kevin, Kathy, Karen, Kelly, Christine and all the O'Brien and Bard families,

I just became aware of Claire's passing last weekend. I was sad to hear of her death. She will be fondly remembered for her beauty, sardonic wit and caring personality. Many times Claire's sense of humor could diffuse any uncomfortable situation. I'm sorry my condolences are so late in coming but none the less heartfelt and sincere. RIP
dear Claire I will remember you with great fondness and love. Caron Skelley D'Ambruso

My brother Laurie says Claire was a year ahead of him at WHS, but she was known and liked by everyone.

My memory is now saying that she was a cheerleader while I was playing football at WHS? What I am certain of is that she was a lovely girl you couldn't help be impressed by.

Still thinking of you all.

To Claire's devoted husband Fran, her children and grandchildren: how lucky you were to have this warm,fun loving,mischievous woman in your lives. I remember Clair in our younger years and she always left a a smile on my face. You are with The Lord now Clair dancing with the angels.

Fran and Family -

I was very very sad to see Claire's lovely face in the Boston Globe this morning. This is one of the worst experiences anyone can have; we grieve for and with you.

I've emailed her notice to my brother Laurie in Texas; he knew her at WHS (class of 53?).

We are thinking of you all.
