  2. Enjoyed working with Clare for many years at Saint Luke’s Hospital.
    We were both hired on the same day (July 1965) and I enjoyed lunch with her at special events (10,20,30 years). We both moved on to St. Vincent’s where I continued to see her smiling face.

    I was very saddened to see your death notice in the paper. My wish for you is Eternal Happiness in the Arms of the Lord. May your soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen

  9. My dearest little Clare,

    How shocked and saddened I was to learn of your death. We lost touch through the years, but the years we had together in the late 60s and early 70s were priceless. We laughed and cried together. We spent precious moments and made wonderful memories that I will treasure and never forget. Please rest in peace as I know you are in the palm of God’s hand.
