I wanted to offer my deepest condolences to your family. I am a Counselor through Pathfinders in the Valley and visited Clare once a month at Heritage. I truly enjoyed my time with him and loved seeing him light up when he talked about his family. He had the best stories! I’m sorry for the delay. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏♥️
