  4. I did not personally know Claire but attended the parade held for her. From the moment I saw that beautiful little face, she captured a piece of my heart. My three children and I have prayed for her and her family every day since. May she enjoy a princess parade every day in Heaven.

  5. My prayers are for you to find comfort, strength and hope in your Faith. I have had you in my prayers every day. I was blessed to spend just one minute with Claire, albeit in a bunny suit. Thanks for sharing your sweet baby with the world.

  6. It’s hard to imagine falling in love with a princess after only talking to her for a few minutes, but that’s exactly how I felt the day I met your beautiful Claire. She definately captured my heart and all those around me. My prayers for Claire and your family continue. May you find comfort in knowing that we stand with you during this difficult time.

  8. From the first time I heard of the Princess Day that was planned for your precious little angel, and saw photos of little Claire, I became absolutely captivated by her story. I watched several different broadcasts of her special day, and I hoped and prayed that there would surely be a miracle.

    From time to time, I would search for an update of information about her, holding my breath each time. It was late April or very early in May that I last looked…until tonight.

    My most heartfelt prayers of love and sympathy are with you, and with your beautiful little girl. I know she is at peace now, and I hope with everything I have that you have found – or soon will find – the peace that comes from knowing you’ll be with her again one day. May you take comfort in knowing that you are all in the hearts of so many. Thank you for sharing her, if only for a brief time, with us all.
