I am so sorry to hear about Claudine's passing. I graduated with her brother, Jim, and rode the school bus with the entire family at one time or another. She was always such a little cutie! I want to extend my sympathies to all of her family members and know that she will be greatly missed by everyone of you. Bonnie Huffman Baker
