  1. Dear Arabelle, We were very sad to hear of Clair\’s passing. It was always so much fun to visit with both of you. I\’m especially grieved by the fact that it happened on your birthday. Certainly, you are in our prayers and thoughts while you go through this very troubling time. We will be giving a memorial for Clair to the Pelican Lake Cemetary fund. God bless you. Lots of Love, Steve, Diane, Levi & Katy

  2. Dear Arabelle, I really have no words to express my feelings on Clair\’s death. He will be missed! I was looking forward to your visit in October and wanted Bill to meet Clair as I believe they would have had a lot in common. Please accept our sympathies. Cousin, Barb (& Bill)

  3. Dear Arabelle, I have never been very good at expressing how I feel at times like these. Needless to say that we were very upset and saddened when we heard that Clair had passed away. You know that you and Clair were a second set of parents to David and myself, and I am glad that my children, especially Kevin, got to know Clair as well as they did. I really wanted to be there, but this national crisis has made it impossible for me to get a flight to Los Angeles. I will try to get out there as soon as I can. In the meantime, you have our deepest sympathies and love. Love, Denis, Debbie, Kevin, Katie, Kristine, & Kelly

  4. Dear Arabelle, Our condolences to you. Clair will be missed very much by all of us. We can hear him now. He\’s figuring out how everything works in his new abode, and he\’s asking questions by the dozens. His inquiring mind never stopped working for a minute! Clair was a marvelous member of the human race and a joy to be around. There are many, many great memories. We\’re so happy we were able to visit you and Clair last March. Please stay in touch in the days ahead. Love, Sherwin and Duffy
