August 15, 2010. We had heavy hearts the last couple of days. Our dear Claire passed from this life after her long struggle with cancer, yet at such a young age. She married into our family and brought compassion, joy, a deep love for God, and a spirit of excitement wherever she went. She taught us how to endure difficulties, how to smile through trials, and how to trust God in the shadow of death. We love you, Claire, and we long for the day we will be with you again after this life is over.
