Claydine was a cherished friend who I will always miss in this life, but I believe we will meet again due to her sincere faith in Jesus as her savior! We shared many good times and deep discussions. Friends like Claydine are extremely hard to find. I remember she really enjoyed watching old movies! She truly loved all of her children and spoke of them often. I pray that the family will have peace and remember their best times together.

Claydine was a wonderful person. I worked with her for 3 years at Mayco and truly enjoyed her presence. She was always there if you needed someone to talk to and had some really awesome stories herself. My favorite story that she told was about penny candy. She said that she would save up her allowance and get penny candy and save it in a little tin. She would then share it with her family at times while they watch a show together. It really shows the kind of person she was... Always willing to share what she could in order to make the time here better for everyone. She will be missed.

Words can't express my deepest condolences in the loss of our dear Claydine. Prayers extended of our amazing Lords comfort to be surrounded to her dear family & friends during this very difficult time. My special memories of Claydine I want to share. She was a woman with heart who took me in during a tough time and showed me so much kindness. She loved hard! She was crafty with an incredible creative mind with ideas I craved to learn, she gave me great cooking advice too and her natural cool was enjoyable to be around. I have never forgotten the times when visiting her of the late night Golden Girl shows we'd watch & easy comfort of catching up on life. She was a beautiful mother who understood me better then my own and accepted me for who I was. I will always appreciate Ms. Claydines place she had in my life and heart. I pray she is in peace and her soul is enjoying a pain free journey on up in a beautiful place called heaven.
