Claire's Last Letter

Share on the day I go to heaven.

Graduation Day

If you are reading this I am in the presence of our almighty God. I feel nothing but unconditional love. Overwhelming pure love. I am so humbled by all of you and wanted to thank you for all of your love and support throughout my battle with cancer.

Cancer was something that happened to other people but when I got it I knew there was a purpose and God would use it for good.

A few years back before cancer I shared with our small group that after I lost my Mom I became at peace with moving on from this life. There is so much comfort knowing that there is much more to our lives than this life on earth. Don't be sad for me but instead care for my dear sweet family. I loved them deeply with every ounce of my heart and soul. I never want to see them suffering or grieving so remember this is not the end.

Lift up my husband , daughters , sister, Dad and all my family. I was blessed with the best supportive family and friends anyone could ask for and my heart is so full. I was given over 37 incredible years with the love of my life David who is a quiet, easy going , kind ,loving, supportive husband who gave me nothing but unconditional love. I felt so very blessed by God to marry such a wonderful man. I was also blessed with two beautiful , kind, wise, loving daughters. Lindsey and Caroline are so much a part of my heart and I will always love them unconditionally. Being their Mom was the highlight of my life. I am so thankful for both of my son in laws Cam and Alex which are both a gift from God for my girls and our whole family. My sister Anne has been my best friend since I was born and she continued to show her overwhelming capacity to love me in both the good times and the bad times. Keep them all laughing Anne it's the best medicine. Also I was so blessed with the sweetest most loving church family and friends. This is not goodbye as I will see you all in a very short time. Be kind to one another and live your life to the fullness. Remember family , friends and fellowship are the most important thing we have in our lives. Enjoy all the art , music and beauty we have been given. Try not to sweat the small stuff because most of it is small stuff. Stay close to God and let him carry you in both the good and trying times. In the end it's not the years in your life that count but the life in your years. I love you all. Claire
