We remember Claire

Here is the link to sweet Claire's obituary in the Santa Barbara Independent, coming out this Thursday:


These are the verses that came across my radar today and lifted my head - from Isaiah 40:
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

We move forward a day at a time - with a limp, to be sure - but clinging to hope and the life to come.


  1. Beautiful. I'll see you Friday. Lots of love and peace to you.

  2. Thank you for posting this Kelly.
    We love you and are praying for you as Friday approaches. You have been such a faithful friend to Claire. Thank you for loving her so well.

  3. Kelly, I've been so encouraged by these posts. Thank you for sharing them with us. Claire was truly a wonderful person.

  4. Kelly,

    I'm so sorry for the pain you must be feeling in the loss of your very special friend Claire. But I am glad that this short, difficult time of separation will be followed by an eternity of glory together. We can't conceive of what God has prepared for those who love Him!

    Hugs to you,

  5. Claire touched so many lives...she was a beautiful example to us all and she will be greatly missed.
