From the moment the Lord sent Claudette, the girls and Mr. Randy into my life. I knew it was the lord sending me an Angel. I could never repay her for all the Love she gave myself and my babies. But I know the Lord has Blessed her and now holding her close. The years have flown by but she and all of you are apart of me and in my prayers. My heart is broken for your loss. Love and prayers......Tammy
