  2. This is our note to Clare, Walt and their family. To Clare: We hope that you are enjoying a new life with God. Maybe someday God willing we will join you for another great Italian dinner with all the trimmings. To Walt: Our sincere regrets that your lovely wife of 55 years is no longer in the house but she will certainly be in your mind and heart. To the family: We have watched you four grow from young teenagers to mature, honest and loving adults, similar to your mother. Clare, we will always keep in our hearts and prayers.

  3. Dear Feistel Family,

    Your beautiful Clare was the manifestation of her name, light. She had such warmth, joy and kindness that she always shared at holiday occasions with me and my family. Her glow was always present. She was so extraordinarily blessed with beauty and generosity. It was a healing experience to be in her presence. She will be remembered as a shining light.
    Martha, Taj, and James
