When family members went to her school to retrieve her belongings, they found the picture.
"They wanted to present it to us. They said they thought she would've appreciated us having it," Lathem said.
This week has been tough for the entire community. The fire still weighs heavily on the hearts of first responders.
"You deal with fatalities," Lathem said. "You deal with them in wrecks, and you deal with them on medical calls. It's maybe one person, or two people. But when it comes to six, and four of them being children, that's a pretty tough pill to swallow."
"It was pretty rough, knowing that we had dealt with her, and that she thought enough of us to make that," said Summerville Fire Sgt. Scott Lewis, who visits local schools to teach kids fire safety.
Clair's pre-kindergarten class was his most recent stop.
"We just try to go through with them, crawling low under smoke, listening for smoke detectors, what to do if your clothes catch on fire, safe meeting places, basic stuff for kids," he said.
The department plans to ramp up fire prevention education efforts to help prevent this kind of heartbreak.
Firefighters also plan to frame Clair's picture at the station. Keeping her memory alive and finding motivation through tragedy.
"Some guys are really wanting that reminder, to make sure that we stay motivated at what we're doing, and not slack at our jobs," said Lathem.
Since the fire, firefighters said they've taken many calls from homeowners who want help installing smoke detectors inside their homes. It's something the department will do for free.
