Betsy, I am so sorry for your loss! Claude was such a great coworker and friend! He was funny, humble, kind and a hard worker! My prayers and love are with you and the family in your time of loss! May God give you peace and strength in the days and months ahead! Love, Dawn Nickelston
I am so very sorry for the family’s loss. I have so many fond memories of visiting my Uncle Claude in North Carolina just about every summer as a kid. I always thought of him as very handsome and funny. I was also always very excited to see him and my Aunt Betsy. I just thought you two were the cutest together. Although it is never easy to lose a loved one, I hope some peace and comfort can be found in the thought that he is at peace and in heaven now. We will all see one another again when the time comes. Sending love and prayers. ♥️
