    Claudette was a great lady. Back in the day when Matthew & I first met.. We remained good friends,Claudette always welcomed me in her home. She showed so much love towards her son,daughter,the entire family. She adored her grandchildren so much. All of them. She was a pip,a tough cookie years ago…But a sweetheart,a dolly. I enjoyed talking to her at family parties..May she rest in peace.

    I remember Chance sneaking out of the house to go knock on Gigis door for candy. Or all of us hanging out together at the pool. Memories that will last all of us a lifetime. You are so missed and loved Grams!
