Such lovely comments about Claire 😉
There is an obituary on the Manchester eveing news online in the memorial section. It gives details of the funeral and who to contact about donations.
She was a brilliant,vibrant shooting star who was with us for too short a time.
Thanks vickie I will pm you my address in a min. I have been wondering myself what the family's preferences are regarding flowers/ donations etc. Ive contacted one of claires close friends to see if she knows before I bother the family. Claire was involved in lots of fundraising so Im sure there will be a charity donation- I will let you know as soon as I know and I'll also post on this thread in case others wish to make a donation in claires memory.
please can you send me yr address? Thankyou for your help. I will be thinking of youonThursday. It will be such a hard day for you on so many levels so sending you cyber hugs. Is there a donation charity fund in Claire's honour instead of flowers do you know?
I am going to claires funeral this thursday and would be happy to take cards for those of you who have said you would like to send one. You can pm me for my address.
Big (((hugs))) to all Claires friends on here. Such a tragic loss I am still in shock and can think of little else.
Miss you Claire xxx
I can't believe she's gone. We lived close by and met for teas. She had such presence and it's so sad to think she's gone. She raised thousands of pounds for charity, was always selfless and bright and I will miss her so so much.
Love you Claire x x x
Yes I agree if anyone knows where we can send a card can u let us know she was a lovely girl who will be missed loads Laura x
DQ - That's a lovely post you've written in Claire's memory and I know how much she meant and will always mean to you. Give me a call if you want to meet for a brew and cake and anything else. Keep strong at this awful time and I'm thinking of you too.
What a lovely (but sad ) post about Claire. She hasn't been off my mind since i heard she had gone in hospital, and i only met her once in person. It must be so very hard for her friends and family. I feel like telling the world a out how fiesty and beautiful she was, and what breast cancer did to her. I know a few ladies from here have asked where they can send a card to. If you are able, could you send me the funeral directors details? No worries if you dont feel its appropriate or find it too upsetting. I hope you keep up with your training and stay well. Claire spoke really fondly of her two friends she went through treatment with when we met, i guess you are one of them then! Thankyou for sharing your thoughts of Claire with us.
I met Claire through Bcc's young women's forum in Warrington in Sept 09, we became friends and went through our treatment together along with anothr friend of ours. We were bald together,we celebrated the end of treatment together and then we all cried and felt sad when her cancer spread eventually ending up in her lungs.
I am still in shock and the waves of grief are so overwhelming. I just can't believe i won't be having one more brew with her to discuss our day. No matter how badly she was feeling especially when she started getting breathless she always asked me how my day was. I lived with her for the last 6 months while doing my nurses training and she was so strong.
I will miss her so much,she will never be forgotten.
However sad i feel i am so happy i got to be friends with her and have had her in my life.
She was loved by so many. Sleep peacefully my wonderful friend x
I'm so so so sorry to hear this. I am thinking of her friends and family as they grieve.
Rest in peace sweet Claire. You were too young to be taken liken like this.

Such shocking dreadfull news. I met Claire and she was lovely and so determined to fight breast cancer. I hate this disease.
My condolances to Claire's family and friends.

That is such sad news, and far too young!
Have only just joined the forum over the last few weeks, so i can't say i knew Claire, but for all her friends and family you have my heartfelt sympathy, and condolences to all who knew her.
I was fortunate enough to meet Claire last December at a meet up in Oldham; she was beautiful, had a gorgeous head of hair and she was a lovely person.
I am so sad at hearing this news and my thoughts are with Claire and her family.
RIP Claire xxx
Agree that this is shocking news. All my sympathy goes to Claire's family and all her friends, especially Tina. I didn't know Claire well although we had pm'd on this site in the past, but she seemed such a lovely caring person. Life is just not fair.
What shocking news, thank you for letting us know Tina, I only just e-mailed Claire last night, this sudden deterioration is so scary and wrong!
I have met Claire and found her to be a very sincere and open person, who became a good support to me with her heartfelt and sincere messages. She really will be missed.
I send my sincere condolences to her family and friends and everybody who knew her.
RIP Claire xx I still can't believe it! - when we met you were so vibrant and full of life, I am so sorry that you had your future taken away by this vile disease!
36 years old?? That is so sad. How awful. I didn't know her but I got tears in my eyes at that. Don't know what else to say except that cancer is soooooooo cruel. xxxxxxxxx
