    Claire was a dear friend, I worked with her at Polo, she was excited about going to UNL this fall. I wish I would have known so I could have attended the funeral. She was always a delight to be around and am proud that she was part of my life. Work is not the same, I miss her beautiful smile and pleasant comments. I pray for my co-workers at Polo and for her family as we are all hurting and will miss her dearly. Love you miss sweet Claire!
