My sincerest condolences to the Miller Family. I have such wonderful memories of Clare from just stopping by on my way home from school to summer Sundays at the beach. She was a woman full of vibrant personality, which I’m sure she needed with a household full of boys! May your memories comfort you now and in the future.
