    My heart is broken. I googled her to see what she was up to, but never expected to find her obituary.

    Claudette was one of a kind and we were great friends in Miami. We had so many fabulous times and we’re part of a trio of ladies who did almost everything together.

    I hope we connect when I transition to the next realm. That would be wonderful!

    My Aunt Claudette lived the axiom, carpe diem. Her tales of exploring the world , shrugging off dangers untold, and searching for knowledge at every turn lit a fire in me that burns to this day. She treated me both as a son and a friend, and spoiled me rotten at every chance, largely with educational gifts, even if it was dancing on a table in a Greek restaurant. She taught me much about class and taste, and is partly responsible for my particular selection of cigars. I’d like to think I took on some of her sense of service, but would still say I have a long ways to go to rate comparison. We were privileged to know and love her.
