When I first met Claire it was the Writers’ Bloc summer workshop and Jodi Thomas was our speaker. The joy on Claire’s face told me two things. Writing brought her great joy and her joy came from the Lord. I loved her positive, can-do attitude. Claire’s first book is days from being released. She had become a leader in our group and a treasure to her church. And in one moment last Friday she went to be with the Father. I rejoice in knowing that some of her dreams came true in the last days and in knowing I will see her again. No doubt this beautiful soul lives on and walks the streets of gold.
