  3. My father, Mike, worked with Claudette at Aerospace for many years. He always spoke very highly of her and over the years, I came to know her fairly well. What a beautiful and caring soul! She never let a year go by without mailing me a birthday card or calling to say hello. Most recently, she attended my dad’s birthday party which meant the world to us. She brightened my life dearly and will be deeply missed. We will hold her all close in our hearts.

  4. I work at Sam’s Club in Torrance where Claudette did her shopping at least once a week. A handful of my co-associates and I became acquainted with her. She never failed to greet us and chat with us. Every now and then, we would talk about her and remember how smart of a dresser she was with her beautiful collection of jewelry to coordinate with whatever garment she was wearing. We could almost see her just waltzing in with her warm and freindly smile. Indeed, she will be missed. With my deepest sympathy…

  5. It was so nice to read the guestbook letters from people who knew your mom in a way that showed such beautiful love and respect. Although we know that no one lives forever, it doesn’t hurt less. Don’t grieve too long. Please try to remember, SHE ISN’T SUFFERING ANYMORE. Our hearts are with you. God bless………… WE LOVE YOU. Uncle Johnny and Aunt Mary
