I will always remember my Uncle Claude as the picture portrays him, smiling and forthcoming with his quick and witty sense of humor. The one instance that comes to mind is when I visited him and my Aunty Ivy to wish them goodbye prior to leaving on a short Christmas vacation with my friends. As I hugged him he reminded me to take care of myself saying " Call me when you reach...and If you don't reach, DON'T call me, call St. Joseph! 'Coz its not like I can help but he will :-) :-) "
Dearest U. Claude I trust that you now rest easy among all the Saints and I pray that you will put in a word to them to shower their blessings on all of us!
