In God's Time, in God's Way, and in God's Will. Today, in His infinite wisdom, God has brought your dearly beloved husband and Pastor, Claude home.

Cel (Sis #1), Today, God has given me the strength to push pass the tears and leave a tribute on this your 1st Heavenly birthday. On any given day - I still look for you to come through the door at mother's (especially on Mondays). I still feel your caring sisterly presence as we look after her. You were (and are) my "sister" role model. I have so many memories of (and with) you that I will cherish always. You're forever in my heart. Knowing you are with our Heavenly Father is so very comforting. Rest in peace, my dear big sister. Happy 1st Heavenly Birthday. Love you always, Renee (Sis #4)

The life I lived allowed me one of the best blessing anyone could receive, that is friendship. I found you to be an amazing friend to me. I always felt welcome in your presents no hidden agendas. You gave everyone that you met a sense of importance. You will be truly missed. May our Lord forever keep you in His arms. Some how these words don't seem adequate for what you gave to us all.

My first playmate, my best friend, it is through tear stained eyes that I pen shed thoughts of how much I miss your glorious smile. You were always the first to remember my birthday, you came the day before so no one gave recognition ahead of you! Now I'm smiling, because I'm remembering just how very special you were. Sleep my love, you fought so hard to stay here but GOD knew that rest is what you deserved so HE called you home . Your legacy of Love sustains us till we meet again we're all coming in due time. You can't crown HIM till we get there! You will always be #1

Your Jack

I can't begin to imagine how joyous being in the presence of the LORD is for you! I have so many beautiful memories of you and your love for others. I truly thank God for how his love through you touched so many lives and how so very humble you were. I know we will see each other again. Like Jack said, "we will all lay our crowns down together at His feet", I miss you and sweet kisses are sent to heaven this day for you!

Happy Birthday to my most precious Godmother. I love looking at photos of you and Pastor Claude hanging with my parents from back in the 70's. I always admired your friendship. My sister recently posted a photo of the four of you sitting on the couch at my grandmothers house. I marveled at how your smile was always radiant. You were simply one of a kind here on earth and I'm sure heaven shines a little brighter now because of that glorious smile!

Whenever I began working out Mrs. Cece would always be the first to notice and she would say, "You're looking good, are you working out?". And I would always be so happy that someone noticed. Then when I would stop working out she would say "You still working out?" Lol That's when I knew I needed to get back on it. I miss you Mrs. Cece. And yes I'm still working out.
