As far as I know, Claude had no family at all. He worked at Bodine Elementary as a custodian where I taught. He kind of "adopted" my family as his own. My husband really wanted to help Claude, and we did various things for him. My husband died several years ago, and I haven't communicated with Claude very much since that time. His favorite was my cherry cheesecake I would make him for his birthday. I just read of his passing in the newspaper, and I know Claude was ready to leave this world when he had to move. I truly believe he was ready to meet Jesus.
