Paul & Barb,
Sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was a real people's person. Brings back many fond memories of him during our youth and ball playing days. As a long time friend of my mom, she will miss the visits with him at Good Samaritan.

Sorry about Claire's passing. Both of us were not able to get to visitation or funeral, but wanted to know we were thinking of you. We will never forget all the good times we had dancing.

Claire had a very good sense of humor and always had a smile on his face. He was very well liked and respected in and around P-town, always had a story to tell. Sorry for your loss.

My condolences to all. I first met your family (Alex and Anna) some 60 years ago when they were farming my grandparents farm (Ted and Martha Taber). And then spent some time at the farm when your Dad was there. Claire was so nice to us kids and I've had a soft spot for that farm and farming since then! My thoughts and prayers are with you in your loss.

To Barb and Paul and their families:
I'm so sorry to hear of Claire's passing, but because his love of people was evident to all who knew him, he'll be missed by many. I have wonderful memories of both your parents simply because they were so kind and caring and full of life. I'll always remember your dad and mine sitting in that kitchen at the farm telling story after story over coffee - until your mom would eventually throw them out. I'm sorry for your loss, but so happy he'll be reunited with Loretta again.

I have many memories of the dances, of your folks playing cards at the folks home, Chuck and Mary Ashpole, and when you lived next door to us how we would play together. I am here in Fl. for the winter so I will miss the funeral but my thoughts and prayers are with you.
