I was so sorry to see of the death of your loved one at such a young age. My heart and prayers go out to you during this time. I have always found encouragement and comfort thru the pages of the scriptures and would like to share a couple of verses with you: John 5:28, 29--Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Those who did good things to a resurrection of life... Isaiah 33:24--:And no resident will say, 'I am sick'. The people dwelling in the land will be those pardoned for their error. May you know that God cares for bereaved ones and the loved one is in his memory.

I really loved Claudia and I was blessed to have her as a friend. Its funny you know that I thought she didn't like me when I first met her working at Charlotte Harbor but it was because she was always so busy and dedicated to the kids there. When we got to know each other, I found that out and I did admire how she was looking out for everyone else. I really enjoyed the time we spent and I will miss her smile. I know that she will be deeply missed by all. Please accept my sincere condolences and know that you all are in my thoughts. Love, Cara Lambert

Claudia was such a great person who always gave her all for others. She will be truly missed. My prayers go out to all of her family and friends. When someone dies, a cloud turns into an angel and flies up to tell god to put another flower on a pillow.

May the peace of the Lord that surpasses all understanding be with you, trusting in the Lord that He knows all (our beginning and end), leaning not unto your own understanding. Cherish the memories and walk by example. I for one will always remember the humble and gentle way she carried herself which showed much strenght.

Claudia was an angel on earth to all of the children she worked with and to all who had the honor of knowing her. She will be forever missed by myself and my son, whose life she greatly impacted. There's a special needs class in heaven that needed a teacher/behavior analyst and they got the very best.

Travis, Jeff and family, Sending you my thoughts and prayers. As I look back on the losses in my life, little eased the overwhelming sorrow except these words someone sent to me. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Love, Debbie
