Although Claire can no longer sing her own song, her family, friends, and even those who never met her keep her melody going with their displays of love and outreach in her name.  Most notably, her mother Kate has donated much time to educating others about domestic violence.  This page is a collection of links to media, speeches, songs, and stories about our beloved Claire.
