Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
One of my fondest memories as a child I can remember is running to the mailbox and seeing a thick white envelope with my name printed with the most beautiful handwriting imaginable. I would read and reread your letters and then plan what I could share in detail back to you. Practicing my cursive and trying to make you proud of how much I had improved with it since the last letters we had shared. Thanks for all the love, hugs, laughter, and joy that you shared with me throughout my lifetime. Give my dad a hug for me please ? rest in peace my sweet Aunt Claudette ?

Dear Jamie & family, I was shocked to read of Claudette’s passing. I had the pleasure of knowing her when she came to Carmelite meetings at St. Elizabeth’s in North Adams.
It was always a pleasure to see her beautiful smile & kind demeanor. I’m so sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace.
