To the Claybrooks Family: Mrs. Claybrooks was one the sweetest ladies I grew up to know in my upbringing. She will always be remembered by me as someone who will help you when you need help, be that listening ear when you need someone to talk to, and guide you in the direction you need to go. She was not judgmental, but would give you constructive criticism when needed. She always had a smile on her face to brighten your day. May God bless you with the comfort and strength you need during this time.

Dear Claybrooks family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Doris. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
