No words can express the sorrow I feel for the loss of Claude. I worked with him very closely in the Houston office and considered him my buddy. I've seen his girls grow up into beautiful young women. He would tell me stories about his dog Harley chewing up his motorcycle exhaust pipe and the siding on his house! He would always have me laughing! He was always so upbeat and funny and had a great sense of humor and always a joy to be around. I remember giving him my collard green recipe and him claiming it as his own! I will always remember him and he will always have a special place in my heart. My condolensces to his family.
