Dear Calhoun Family:
Just to let you know that after dinner this evening, the Misiti family was treated to a reading of Claire's eulogy as given by her friend "Mott" and documented on her CaringBridge site. On Memorial Day weekend, we thought it was an appropriate tribute.
Yes it is true that Princess Claire may not have been a soldier in the service of our country, but her long battle, tenacious fight, and exemplary bravery certainly earns her a place on my list of heroes.
My kids, including Domenic of course, were solemn and respectful of Claire and of your family and of your inspiring story. Please know that if we ever get out to Seattle we will be sure to find you.
In the meantime, please also know that Claire lives on in our hearts and minds as an inspiration of faith and fortitude...as do all of the Calhouns.
God bless all of you.
