On Claire's behalf ...

This is Rosalie Dale writing on Claire’s behalf. Sadly the fact that I am posting this message means that Claire lost her battle with cancer at 9.30am today in Perth Hospital (Western Australia).

I have posted more, along with photos of Claire, in a journal here.

It would be so good if you could go leave a message for her two sons … I will ensure they receive all comments in time for the funeral next week. If anyone in Perth would like to know details not contained in my journal, I do have a phone number for Claire’s friend… just bubblemail me.

Thank you for supporting her photographic endeavours – her gallery is a testament to her passion for the hobby. And her courage and cheeful attitude blew me away. She was cheeky apparently to the last!

    Rosalie thankyou for posting this to us all; although it is a surprise that it has happened so quickly. Claire in her last months had a lot to deal with but never a complaint was heard. Sympathies to John and Matt.
