I remember the good times we had in and out of school, especially riding horse. We had tons of fun! I wish we would have kept in touch, but so many go our own way and regret it later. You were too young to leave us! RIP Claudia, you were a great person and had a big heart.❣️My prayers to your families! God bless you all! You will be missed but not forgotten Claudia! πŸ™

All our sympathy's to Gary and family. We will definitely miss her too. Enjoyed our times of conversations, laughs and coffee at the cafe with Claudia in Waldorf. We will definitely miss playing cards these last years up at the Community building each month with her. She was the life of the party! May you be at peace now riding around in your golf cart in heaven!!

Ever since you started coming up for coffee you filled our lives with joy. Even when you were down you could put a smile on our faces. Coffee and peanut butter toast and cheerful conversation. You will be missed good friend.
