I only heard of Claude's passing today and am truly floored. Claude was an extraordinary human being with a heart of gold and a forever young spirit. His constant playfulness, joking, and edge for laughter made him an absolute joy to be around, and his pranks and antics too were memories I'm sure everyone who knew him will keep with them forever. I am blessed to have had the opportunity not only to work alongside Claude, but gain a true friend. His impact in the short time I've known him speaks to his worth as a human. Claude, you are and will always be missed. Heaven has truly gained.
