The high school senior’s family posted a statement on Facebook:

“Although we have lost our precious daughter,” the family said, “we will always be grateful for the indelible journey she took us on over the last 17 years — we were truly blessed to be Claire’s parents. The grace, laughter and light she brought to this world will not be extinguished by her death; to the contrary, it will only get stronger.”

The family thanked the first-responders, school, sheriff’s office and others for their “extraordinary work” on Claire’s behalf.
