I also never met Claudene but I read her story and then found out she was a "friend of a friend" from Alaska. Somebody already posted that even a stranger can have compassion for the story. My prayers go out to Claudene's family and all off those who knew her.
taken too youngm but her spirit will guide many~

Many years ago, my mother and I toured the Bounty replica tall ship. I watched the television coverage late into the night never realizing that Claudene was the rescued one who was unable to survive. The last time that I saw Claudene was at The Petroleum Club of Anchorage when we renewed our friendship on one of her visits. In my West High classroom before I retired, I had a poster of the USC Song Girls that she had autographed and sent to me, which I believe may now be in my collection at UAA Archives. I was the West High cheerleader sponsor in her junior year of high school and the mass media communications teacher. I was impressed with her last message which I read on national television while I am in Florida with my 80 year old husband who is in an assisted living faciity. In shock, I thought that she passed away as she had lived with a great zest for life without having to endure the difficulties of old age. She is someone that I will never forget. I think of her entering my classroom full of enthusiasm every day that I knew her no matter what the circumstances. Peace be with all of you who mourn her loss, Millie Wedel Cowgill,Naples, Florida

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Christian,
From the moment I heard that the HMS Bounty was in trouble during hurricane Sandy, I followed the story closely, being from Boothbay Harbor, Maine with fishermen in my own family, I couldn't help but feel a connection and horror as I learned of the tragic events that were unfolding, especially upon discovering that Captain Robin was missing and a young female crewmate had lost her life...your beloved daughter Claudene.
But then the most incredible thing began to happen...as I began to learn about her very remarkable story, and also found out we shared the same birthday, I just felt drawn to know more about her (which was a huge blessing) and fairly easy as she has left such an incredibly large legacy behind her mere 42 years...multitudes of dear friends near and far (old and new) a lifetime of creativity, a mind for business, gifted with talent and music, her unbridled enthusiasm and spirit of adventure, not to mention that brilliant smile...
I am so deeply sorry for your painful and heartbreaking loss...but I just want you to know that I will be thinking of you and lifting my glass to her this evening along with all of those from Alaska to Hermosa (and everywhere else) that will be celebrating her incredible life...and others, just like myself, while not having had the privilege to know her personally, will have the honor to celebrate the amazing gift of inspiration she has left to us, and those that her life will continue to touch. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.
"Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can the floods drown it"

Claudene and I weren't best friends in high-school, that's for sure. She had an amazing voice and so many talents. I would say to her, I really wasn't the one who T P'd your truck at that hockey game. She always thought I did...I don't know why? I was looking for her at our 20 yr reunion but she wasn't there. I wish we could have cleared that up. TO HER FAMILY: I'm sorry for your loss, she really was such a bright spirit. West high class 1988

Claudene was truly a joyful person. She was so fun to be with, so sweet to everyone and I believe she lived life to the fullest. She was a good friend to me at USC. We were song girls together our sophomore year. She will be missed dearly. I hope to see her again one day in heaven.

I had the pleasure of meeting Claudene one day when I was working security for the ship Mayflower II what a wonderful person and full of life and she loved her job on the Bounty
God Bless
