I will miss the phone calls I had with my Grandma. She always remembered my birthday and would go out of her way to make sure I received her birthday card each year. She had a great laugh and smile! I will greatly miss her!

Mom suffered with dementia for many years and it became more evident in the last two years of her life. She was a very giving person, although she was a private person at the same time. I know she is with her family now and in God's arms which gives me great comfort.

I am sorry for your loss. Though I never met Claire from my best memory or don't remember who she was. My mother Rozane (Ephraim UT), My Aunt Rose Marie (Ephraim, UT) (Kay and Sarah Goff Daughters )wish to express our condolences for your loss. My mother says I've met her at my Grandma Sarah Goff's funeral but I don't remember myself as that was in 1992.
