If you have ever met Claude you know what an incredible man he was. Witty, kind, and oh, so smart! He was always so patient and generous with his time and knowledge - willing to sit with you to explain details or just to hear you out. His love for learning was apparent as soon as you met him. He genuinely loved meeting and learning about new people. Claude had this almost tangible love for my sister, it was so deep and real. They were each other's king and queen! And his baby boy would light up when he walked in the room. He was truly a great person and the world will definitely be a sadder place without him.
If you have the means, please help my sister, Liz, and baby Micah, by donating ANY amount you can to help cover funeral costs, housing, and daycare. I know there are so many charities and people in need, it's hard to choose. At the very least, prayers and love are always needed and welcomed.
Our hearts are hurting over Claude's sudden passing and our worlds will never be the same. Micah may have lost his father, but he will know and love him through our tales and memories of him.
Please send lots of prayers and love to Liz and Micah. And remember to hug your loved ones a little tighter today and everyday.
