Tribute From Matt Polky
Today's #TributeTuesday comes from Matthew Polky. Thank you for your sweet words. We miss our girl every day, and seeing how she touched so many lives warms our hearts. ❤
"I remember elementary school. And recess. And swinging upside down on the girl's monkey bars once. And loving you. Every time my eyes darted toward you. You were the girl I liked before I even knew I liked girls. I was so happy when we reconnected in our adult years. I got to meet your friends and family and see the warmth and love that radiated all around you. You were the definition of grace, an angel brought to Earth and taken back too soon. You were loved and always will be."
Tribute from Taylor Sant
Today's #TributeTuesday comes from Taylor Sant, one of Claire's dental school classmates:
"Claire was literally the nicest, sweetest, most thoughtful person I have ever met. She was the Community Service Committee Leader for our class, volunteered with several community programs, and wanted to use the skills she acquired as a dentist to serve those less fortunate and help those that could not financially afford it. This event of her death has instilled in me a passion to have the same passion she had, and I will look forward to serving those less fortunate who cannot afford dental treatment.
Thank you, Claire, for making this world a better place every day you were on this earth. Your legacy will go forward with over 100 brothers and sisters you called your classmates for 4 years."
Claire LOVED the University of Louisville School of Dentistry Class of 2017. Thank you for the sweet words, and reminding us of why we strive to #BeMoreLikeClaire
