To the Editor:
There are no shortage of amazing ways to describe the impact that Claire Phelan made on our lives – from her boundless energy and kind spirit to her tireless support for members of our society who are all too often marginalized and forgotten. Claire was, and will continue to be, an inspiration to all.
I had the privilege of knowing Claire through the Milford Democratic Town Committee. Claire was a passionate Democrat who never stopped fighting for her ideals and beliefs: help those in need, treat others as you want to be treated, and stand up for working men and women. Her tireless dedication to her beliefs made Claire a passionate advocate and a stalwart ally. Most of all, she was a reliable friend.
While losing Claire is an enormous loss to our society and she will be deeply missed, there is no doubt that the world is a better place because of her time here.
