My heart is broken at the loss of Clare. We were friends since high school and had many happy meetings, especially with our friends from the 1962 class of St. Pius X. She was a warm and caring person and had a delightful sense of humor. My condolences to her children and her sisters Karen and Patty and brother Walt and especially to her daughter Kathy and wonderful granddaughter Lyndsey who she spoke of with great love. And to Charlie, I am so sorry for your loss. I always felt that I was a part of the Moyer clan.
