Dick and Flo Kiddle left a message on August 13, 2013:
We arrived in time to be with Aunt Claire, to spend the last hours with her, she knew that we were there, by the movement of her eyes and her breathing as we spoke to her. We told her that she was loved by so many and everyone understood that she was tired and needed to rest. Dick told her he loved her and understood she needed to rest and that everything would be okay. With those words her breathing became more shallow and she passed very peacefully. We stayed with her the whole time and told her she was not alone and we would be with her until the end. We will miss Aunt Claire so very much.

We will remember that visit fondly, as well as her terrific Sterling House helpers and staff and friends, who made me feel comfortable as to her welfare, from afar. John Babcock
