"Ashes passed away last night, she is buried in my back yard. Dave and I will find a nice rose bush to mark the spot. Hope you two are together again."
"Happy Birthday Mom! Thinking of you today. Saw Susan and Winston last weekend and the Korean Arbie they planted in your honor had shown signs of a rough winter, but had lots of new growth. Planted flowers around your Brother Robert's stone too. You would have liked that!"
"We gathered at St Laurent's one year ago, to say goodbye as you well know. We're doing fine, just wanted to say I've simple come to mark the day."
"Happy Mothers Day Mom, I love you!"
"It has been one year to the day/hour that Linda called me to tell me Mom had passed. Still grieving......."
"Dear Momma, we have come full circle and today I am cleaning out that same hall closet I was cleaning out last year. I thought of you yesterday when I spent 22 on a hair barrette at the airport.. the apple does not fall far from the tree."
"First Christmas and New Year's without you, Mom. Just wasn't the same. Love and miss you!"
"Happy Birthday Mom. You would be 91 today! I know you loved Birthday Celebrations and send love and blessings your way today:)"
"Happy Birthday Mom - I remember how much you liked to go shelling on Honeymoon Island. All the cabins are gone from the storm, but the walk out to the sand bars always leaves me breathless."
"Dear Claire's family..... we are thinking of you from Waldoboro today. Winston and I will be planting a Korean Fir tree..... in memory of CLaire today. It may grow 25' high and 15' wide, it has blue pine cones and will be our Christmas Tree. We'll keep it growing in her name. We are sad to loose her, but we celebrate her life. Love to y'all. Remember the good times."
"**************H A P P Y M O T H E R ' S D A Y M O M*******************"
"We grew up next door to Claire, Lori, Linda, LuAnn and Grampa Veronneau. The images of Claire working tirelessly outside in her garden...rototilling the soil, planting, harvesting, canning...are so vivid still. And her laugh! She had a great laugh....Rest well, Claire"
"I remember the times you visited Fl, we would sit in Linda's garage and soak up the Sunshine and enjoy. I know that you are part of that Sunshine, now. My prayers are with your loved ones, you left behind for a Better Place. You on earth, leave wonderful memories, that I know will not beforgotten...God Bless and keep you."
"I will miss you grandma. You gave our family an unexpected strength by your strong spirit and stubborn will. I'm already missing the summers in Maine and crazy holiday events. You have given me hope for longevity and an adventerous life. I love and miss you greatly."
"Grandma I will miss spending time with you. I really enjoyed our weekly chats and your sharp wit. I will always be inspired by your love of scrabble, crossword puzzles and wheel of fortune. And every time I eat a piece of our favorite desert cheesecake I will think of you. Thank you for passing your love of cooking to me. Your strength is inspirational."
"Wishing your beautiful family much peace in this time after Claire's departure. It is so nice to see these pictures of all of you and her during your life. No denying your resemblance with Laurel- who I know personally."
"You were a great grandmother, always stubborn and never giving up. I miss playing scrabble with you and the rest of the family. The cat's miss you too, we all do, very very much."
"I am thankful that Claire was able to visit us and tour our gardens on the golf cart in the springtime. She really did make the best raspberry jam, ever! Her daughter, Lori, has been a friend of mine for a very long time. This is a beautiful and heartwarming tribute"
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Mom will be in my heart forever, and Ashes misses you too!"
"I built a tool shed in Maine for Claire, she made me the best banana cream pie, then kicked my butt in scrabble. I'll miss her. That gifted DNA marches on and my love and condolences go to her progeny."
"Clair was a great friend and was always happy to have friends drop by.
Each year we had a New Year's celebration....with cheese and crackers and a taste of Champaign. It was a treat that brought in the new year. I'll always remember those special times.
And Claire made fantastic fruit pies."
"Claire, we will really miss you as our neighbor and friend on Dutch Neck. I know that Sophie and William will tend to your blueberry and raspberry bushes with love and think of you with every precious harvest. Thank you for all you did to make life on the Neck that much more special for the Stark family."
"Claire, you always said you got messages from birds, and told me the story about how you were fishing in the sea and a bird landed on your fishing pole. I was just remembering this when I heard you'd crossed over. I was trying to remember if it was a blue bird. You told me they tell you when somebody dies. I think you were just letting me know."
"I miss you Mom already and am so thankful I was able to spend a week with you recently. I will always be thankful that you passed your talents for good food, scrabble, crossword puzzles and gardening down, even if I didn't excel in them as you did. I feel you now breathing easy, being in your heaven and relaxing, hoping you know how much you are still loved."
"Nothing will ever compare to her jams, picking berries in the summer. I'm glad she could get to know my wife, Clover, and daughter, Morgan. I wish there were time for her to meet my son, as well."
"Momma, I am glad we had our time together and we were able to provide you a haven of comfort and care in your last days. You are loved and missed."
