Claude,

Sorry to hear about your Mom. You and I were born at Dale Mabry on the same day and we had to be down the hall from each other, so we definitely have a connection.

Hope all is well with you.

Sincerely,
Franklin Thompson

Hey Claude,
I remember your mom making life fun for two little kids on sleepover weekends at the dairy; for making fabulous breakfasts, for being excited for us when we caught a mess of bream in the pond out near the highway, and for coming up with great ideas when we got bored. Actually, I remember her at the old dairy near the fairgrounds (am I dating myself or what!). She was a fabulous mom and I know you'll miss her. I've been in South American since 2005 and get back to Tallahassee a couple times a year.

Wow! What a life!
Claude, your mom was a sweet lady with a wide open heart. She adopted everyone she met. I know you will miss her; but know that heaven is brighter today because she's there.
May the peace of the Lord be with you and your family!

C.C., Your mother was a very sweet lady. She always went out of her way to make me feel special when I was around her. May GOD bless your family.

Loving memories of great Aunt Mary - going to visit her down the beautiful tree lined driveway to the house at the farm, her sweet, sweet smile, always kind words, and her unending love of the antics and precociousness of little boys! You will be missed!

Claude,
Always enjoyed talking to your mom and seeing her walk when she lived on the farm. She was always so nice.
We are in Dade City for winter but thinking of you and Linda.

Mary was a lovely neighbor, always cheerful and with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed her stories of growing up on the dairy farm and of her family. I will miss her as I know you will. She loved her family dearly.
