We had the pleasure of meeting Claude for the first time at his granddaughters wedding. She married our son.
What a lovely conversation with a lovely man.
We are so glad we had the opportunity to meet him . Kelsie has talked about him to us in the past.
May he rest in peace. Prayers for his loved ones.

There are special people we meet during our lifetime. Claude was a very special man and a friend to everyone. I feel very privileged to have known him and to be considered a friend. I never saw him without a smile and that twinkle in his eye and he was very quick with a clever remark that always got a laugh.
Our coffee gatherings after church were always fun when Claude was there. He was a man's man with a very positive outlook and he always spoke proudly of his family. I can honestly say he will be missed greatly on Sunday mornings at church, especially in the back row. Rest peacefully with your wife in heaven, my friend, and keep all of them laughing up there.
