I feel so saddened by the loss of Claire. She and Al were such special people. Having their apt. next to the therapy room, allowed us to know them especially well. Al always made sure we had a morning sweet roll and Claire always gave us 4:00 crackers and dip. Her effervescent smile and her generous heart and soul made everyone smile. She couldn't do enough for anyone!
Claire is with her adoring Al and I am sure they are so happy to be together.
She would be so proud of all of their Grandchildren and Helene and Bill who spoke so eloquently. She made a profound impact on all who were lucky enough to know her. She will be missed by all!!!
Warmly, Judy Vass

Dear Horowitz Family,
We were so saddened to hear of Claire's passing. We always enjoyed seeing her at special events of our family. She would always ask about our kids and grandchildren and was asking because she genuinely cared to know. She was the most caring friend to Barbara and her family. May she Rest In Peace.

My auntie Claire was like another mother to me and a best friend to my mom. There has never been and never will be another person like my auntie Claire. She never forgot a birthday or any special moments for anyone in my family. She was always there to listen or show concern for any matter big or small.
I will miss so much those late night phone calls where she made me laugh and where she only wanted to hear about my kids and grandchild. She called my mom twice a day to check in and always invited her to family dinners as she never wanted for my mom to be alone after my dad passed away.
Both her and Uncle Al were one of a kind and will be forever missed and will forever hold a very special place in my heart. My heart is broken but Heaven just got the best angel of all.

I'm a friend of Aunt Norene's and Uncle Larry. I've known both your parents for many years and want to give you my sincere condolences. Both your parents were lovely people and they will be missed by many. The service was just beautiful and your Mother would have loved every minute of it.
