    My thoughts and prayers are with Faye, Christopher, Tommy, Terry, Wendy, the in-laws and all of the grandchildren during this difficult time. My memories of Claude will always be at the big white house in Newton, NC with his orange Porsche in the backyard, his large amount of antiques in that house, his cameo appearance in "Weekend at Bernies" and the big long words that he always used. May God bless all of you at this difficult time.
