Hilda and Wilma I am so sorry! I would have attended the funeral, but I didn't know about your loss until Friday night. Claudette was a sweet lady and a good mother. I know you miss her so much. No one ever loves you like your mother. God gives us the gift of sweet memories so cherish the ones you made with her.
