Oh Gwen & family. I was so very sorry to hear this just now! Haven't followed for awhile but was watching a video about two kids in one family with an undiagnosed motor-control/proprioceptive disorder & the challenges the family has faced, & was reminded of your lovely family. I also followed Vitoria deCristo for her whole life of 2-1/2 years & was struck by the love Claire & all these kids inspire the world over, they feel joy & sorrow , they make their own progress in their own increments & in their own time. What more could any of us hope to get from life?
I so admire your strength, courage & laughter. I will be thinking of you.

She Will be missed by all who have been with her, and Lola and all of you. She was an envoy of God.
God bless you all. Please take care of each other, and be good to yourselves. What a lucky young lady to have been born into your wonderful family.
Hugs to all of you

Sending the Hartleys huge e-hugs during this heartbreak. I am a stranger to you, but you all are no strangers to me, I started reading Gwen's blog ages ago and have held so much love for your family over the years. I am so struck by the intensity of my grief for the loss a wonderful young woman, whom I have never met. I don't mean to make this about myself, only hope that it may speak to the degree of impact had by Claire's life. I send my love to you, Gwen, for while Claire has changed thousands upon thousands of lives, no child changes anyone's life as much of that of their mother. She has always been with you on a cellular level, and I will be holding you in my heart as you navigate this cellular-level grief. I send my love to you, Scott, for being such a clear and solid rock for your family, as a supportive partner and doting father. I feel dads are too often an afterthought with child loss—while the love of a mother and the love of a father are unique from each other, they have no difference in how deep they run, or how acutely you feel the huge loss of Claire on Earth. I will be holding you in my heart. I send my love to you, Cal, for being the best brother to Claire she or your parents could have dreamed. You are lucky to have had each other. Neither of you would have turned out quite so wonderful without the other. And you know that already, but that in and of itself is part of what makes you so special! I will be holding you in my heart. I send my love to you, Lola, for being the frack to Claire's frick, while always remaining your own sweet unique spunky self. I know you feel the loss of your sister's presence, and I will be holding you in my heart as you work through these energies in your own way. I send my love to you, Claire, for teaching your parents, your brother, everyone you know, and tens, dare I say hundreds of thousands of people across the world about so much. I send my love to you just for being who you are, because who you are is glorious! I will hold your memory dearly in my heart even though I never had to opportunity to meet you while you were here on this Earth.

Our hearts are with you during this very difficult time. What an amazing life you provided for Claire and she returned your care with her smiles, frowns and all the challenges of her 17 years, in many ways like any other teen in her own special way. A piece of her will always be with you. We're so sorry we never had the opportunity to meet Claire in person. Your stories of her though made her very real and hopefully you can take comfort in those stories in the days to come. Wish we could be there to give you hugs. Our thoughts are with you at this very, very hard time.

Our entire family grieves the loss of your sweet Claire. You, Gwen, have been an amazing and constant resource for us as we learned of our Maisy's special abilities. You've never failed to share the wisdom you gained from experience with Claire and Lola. You've shared your thoughts and feelings, your ups and your downs, and in all of your sharing we were encouraged. You and Scott not only defied the odds, you maximized Claire's life, you touched countless others in the process, and I'm sure Claire is now sharing with the host of heaven about her amazing earthly family!!

So shocked and saddened by the passing of sweet and beautiful Claire. Here is a poem I wrote.
This child is whole,
This child has no pain … .
This child walks among the angels'.....
This child is now sitting at the foot of God and his son Jesus......
This child is telling God and his son what wonderful and loving parents she had on earth.....and God said to the child, that is why I gave you to them so they would give you a life time of love, in your short time on earth....
Prayers for mom and dad for healing in your hearts....long FB HUGS ...
I wish I could take this pain away from you guys...

I have the feeling that where you wake every day now is beautiful and full of adventures that are absolutely all waiting for your exploration.

No words can express the sadness so many feel for your family at this time of loss of your beautiful Claire. She was loved by so many as is Lola, your family is loved because you took the time to share Claire and the rest of your family with the world. I know your hearts are broken, but God is with you all during your time of grief. I know Claire has the most beautiful angel wings and that she is using them to fly free for the first time in her life, feeling no pain and is able to experience what she was unable to on this earth. She'll be watching over you!

I am so terribly sorry that Claire has passed away, I can only imagine how you must be feeling. To encourage you I would like to share that my paraplegic husband passed away young and after his funeral God gave me an insight into where he was - I saw him leaping and dancing and running and literally hooting with joy around a beautiful garden. Know that Claire is with her heavenly Father experiencing that same joy and freedom and she will be standing tall, a smile of welcome on her face ready for a huge hug when its time to be with her. She and all your family have brought so much joy to my life through hard times - I pray you will know the courage and peace you have brought to me in hard times. In NZ we have a saying 'Kia kaha' which is Maori and means be strong, I wish you strength. Kia kaha Hartley family XX With much love.

Heaven has just welcomed the most amazing little angel. Her body is healed and she is flying on gossamer wings, waiting and watching over you until the moment you meet again. Fly free, sweet Claire. You gave and received more unconditional love in 17 years than most people experience in their lifespan. You touched the hearts of so many people, and inspired all of us to be better, more compassionate people.
You showed us that all lives have value and meaning, and that kindness is so much more important than the superficial things we tend to value.
God Bless You, Claire. May wonderful memories comfort your Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, friends and relatives until you are united forever.

When my Teal'c was born she was the first special needs child I had seen with any similarities to him. Your family helped me thru some heavy emotions chatting with you late at night while i was up with my sick baby, reading your blog and watching Claire grow and develop...My whole family is crying with you now.

My heart is so broken for you, I can't imagine how much you are hurting now. Claire was truly a miracle, and angel on earth. She touched so many lives.

We are so sorry to hear about your sweet girl. The pain you’re feeling in this moment is unfathamable. We are lifting you up in prayer and hoping the peace of God overwhelmes you in these days, weeks and years to come.

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to your family. Claire made me smile. Such a gentle soul. My heart hurts for your loss. She's now in her heavenly body enjoying the freedoms she didn't have here in her earthly body. Oh, such joy for her!
I pray for comfort and love for your family, and for Claire's caregivers. I pray that Lola will smoothly, if sadly, adjust to these changes.
Love to you, Hartley family!

I am deeply saddened by the passing of sweet Claire! I know she is in the arms of Jesus and making new friends in Heaven. She is such a darling girl who graced us with her beauty every time pictures were posted of her.
My prayers are: 1. That Lola does not get any viruses during this flu season.
2. That God comforts you with His arms wrapped around as you mourn her loss and live daily without her.
I will always love Claire!
Hugs!
Tina
