I knew Claire and John as our next door neighbors. Claire and a couple of our neighbors and myself would
get together some summer mornings and enjoy a cup
of tea and make small talk. Lori and Katie please accept the Miele's condolences.
Prayers for Claire.
Keep the faith Mrs Miele

Lori and Katie, I am so sorry for your loss. We are family and your loss is my loss. I will always remember your Mom fondly and our childhood as they both helped to shape my life. Oh the stories we could tell ... Love and Peace. - Matt

I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I met Claire when she & my Aunt Shirley were roommates at Salem Haven. After Shirley passed away I visited Claire from time to time. She was such a pleasant lady & always had a big smile for me when I walked into her room.
Claire was just a lovely lady & I always enjoyed our visits.
Please accept my sympathy.
Prayers for Claire!

My sincere condolences and prayers are with the family. May our heavenly Father Jehovah comforts your family in all the trials. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.—Job 14:14, 15.
