My condolences to you all , Claude was a wonderful, kind and loving person, I loved going to visit her and hearing her stories about the old west side, she has helped so many people .
I remember the last real visit we had was when we baptized Trae and Chole in her kitchen , she had a little plastic container with holy water that she took from church lol. I will miss her deeply.
R.I.P my sister in law. I will miss you deeply.

Of all the memories I hold of you, the most that stick out is sitting in the bleachers at Nieghbor house field watching Cory play for the Boosters and you sitting next to me and Dawn and we're talking the nite away about family. The Westside truly lost an icon 😔 From Cory and myself...our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you all. The universe has a new star in the night sky....and it's...Claudette 🌠

To the family of Claudette. My wife and I only meet her once on the 4th of July a couple of years ago. I really enjoyed talking with her and Diane about your part of my family which I had little information about. Except when Vice Principal Mr. Jett. would stop me in the hallway and asked me why my sister Diane wasn't in school? I returned saying I don't have a sister named Diane.
My deepest condolences to you and your family in the departure of your mother.
I'm sorry I will not be able to attend the services for your mom due to me being hospitalized and recovery from my most surgery.
God Bless

Your mom was an angel who gave love and comfort to a struggling teenager. She welcomed me into your home, fed me, and always had words of life to share. I will forever remember her cabbage rolls. They were amazing. God bless each of you at this time of grieving. May your wonderful memories sustain you in the future. 🙏🏼
