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.

My condolences to the O'Briens. I remember Claire sitting in the bleachers at our baseball games with her lovely daughters back in the early 70s while we played for Fran. The O'Briens were such a part of our lives back then and will remain so for as long as we all live. We will miss you Claire. My thoughts are with you always.
