For My Wonderful Grandma,

Because your always thought about
In such a special way
Because you always did so much to brighten up each day
And because you cared for others selflessy your whole life through
I say a little prayer each day
especially for you
That heaven will protect you
And will somehow let you know
That, Grandma, you mean so much to me and that I miss you so
And that I'll think about you
As I travel on life's way
And keep you safe within my heart
Forever and a day

I will miss you dearly and always cherish the memories we made together. I love you Grandma and know you will be watching over us until the day we meet again.

She was such a great aunt to myself and my sister Deborah. I will never forget those visits to them in Houston when we were kids. She made every visit seem magical.
Thank you Herb and I’m sorry I can’t be there.

Claudine our beautiful poised cousin was the one we wanted to be like. The times I got to spend with her were magical times. That charm, that accent and infectious laugh were captivating. But along with that southern charm was a strong independent woman with backbone who stood up for herself and what she believed; something I think of as Pritchett grit. She will be missed on this side.

My grandmother is a beautiful, amazing, smart, kind-hearted woman. I am so lucky to be able to call her my grandmother and great grandmother to my twin daughters. She was the most fashionable grandmother I know who could rock just about anything she wore, from her beautiful hair and painted nails from her high heels down to her matching purse. I will always cherish the memories that my daughters and I got to make with our grandmother. I will always admire the love and strong bond between my grandparents. The way they looked at one another, respected one another, their 38 plus years together, their love for one another is a true love story that one day I hope to experience because my grandparents are my favorite couple I look up too. Grandma was such a positive person and when she walked into a room she would brighten it with her amazing smile and beautiful soul. The girls and I love you so much. You are missed deeply. Please continue to watch over grandpa.

My grandma was an amazing woman. She was loving, nurturing and selfless. A woman who carried herself with such grace. Grandma was unbelievably compassionate. Her heart and her generosity knew no bounds. She always made sure we had what we wanted. I still hear her voice calling me “little bit” and I am so grateful to have had such an amazing role model in my life. She was perfect. Perfect in every respect- her laugh, her smile, her hugs. I love you grandma. You will be missed.

This morning there is a void in our hearts. Our beautiful Claudine is not with us. God has welcomed her home with open arms and in time will help heal our
pain. We feel blessed to have Herb in our family and want him to know how
much we appreciate the love and care he has given her. We will always love you.

My Mom, Claudine was a warm, compassionate and strong vibrant woman who always went out of her way to help others. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and always had me laughing. She was a proud woman who believed that there was no obstacle that couldn’t be overcome. I have to say that she definitely past that on to me. I will draw strength from all the things she taught me and live by the words she quoted as if her own. “Accept the things you cannot change and change the things you can”
I don’t know how I will cope without her, I have a massive hole in my heart. I love you so much and will miss you more than words can say ❤️

Claudine was a woman of beauty, grace and kindness but there was also grit and strength. I’ve carried her around in my heart in places where I felt uncomfortable or out of my league and relied on her strength and poise to see me through.
