Rest in peace, sweet Claire...

Claire Elise Hartley

We are absolutely devastated to have lost our sweet Claire last night. Her body systems shut down, possibly due to a catastrophic virus. Abby Dawn Maclaskey, our local EMS and police worked lovingly and thoroughly to try to save her life. Despite their attempts, we were not able to restart her heart. Her body had fulfilled its mission on Earth, and Claire earned her angel wings. We are completely shattered, in total disbelief, and heartbroken beyond comprehension. We know how many lives she impacted in her short 17 years, and we are so proud of her for living and loving life to its fullest. We selfishly wanted more time, as life is just not the same without her here. We will be taking a social media break until we feel we are able to sort through the magnitude of this tremendous loss. Thank you for loving our girl all these years and for never forgetting how important her precious life was. We love you all.

In lieu of flowers (as Lola is allergic to many flowers), memorials can be made to: Night To Shine in c/o the Tim Tebow Foundation and Make a Wish Foundation of Kansas.

Hey, Gwen. I'm so sorry for Claire's passing. I've seen your girls' and your interview on SBSK, and I think we'd hit it off as friends. We're both sarcastic bitches. ;) I don't know if you're aware, but SBSK's comments have been turned off, allegedly for the purpose of "saving the children." I made a video about it here: https://youtu.be/wPvb71a2GQw
