I've worked for SNHS for 3 years, but have known Claudette much longer during my 30 years with HUD. She was a funny, warm, STRONG woman. So much stronger than I could ever have imagined. I always used to tell her she reminded me of my sister in her facial and hand expressions. Claudette - I hope you're looking down at all of us with a drink in your hand and a smile on your face. Love you lady! And Dan, my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. xox

Know that you, your Dad and sister as well as the extended family are being upheld in prayer. If there is anything you need please let us know. Love and prayers for God's love and peace to encase you.
