Claude, Joy and family.....I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Father. I know that this is a difficult time for you all, and will be keeping you all in my prayers. Trisha

It is with a heavy heart that I express my condolences to the family of Claude. He was a very good man whom I had the privilege to have known and worked with for over 20 years. As the MWR'Chief of Supply and Property books he was the best.So sorry the Lord has taken him so early but he must have needed him in heaven to take care of the property, for sure.

Sylvia and Family, I am sorry to lean of Claude's passing.I do not understand why God has taken away from this earth such a good man. Yes, someday we will understand and yes, life will continue, but many of us it will be different as we continue our journey. Claude had the unique ability to tell me something in such a way that I never felt like he was wrong.The more I listened to him the better our lives became and the better our friendship grew.You meet a lot of men in the military and they all look alike but you learn to recognize the good ones by the way in which they live, the way they treat one another, and how the go about doing the right thing. We will miss him but I am sure that God has him doing the "Roll Call" and hope that someday we will hear him call our name too.
