It was my pleasure to care for Mrs. Baxter during her stay @ the Mansions. She was one of my most favorite people & I will miss her dearly. She adored all of you & I loved hearing her stories :) Prayers for all of you!
Dear Don, Jess, Marti and family:
On behalf of all the Tharps please accept our condolences on Claudia's passing. We know recent years have been difficult for her, as she struggled valiantly to live and to care for Don. The past few weeks without your dad must have been brutal for her alone, and one has to believe that they are together again; healthy, happy and in God's presence along with all their loved ones gone before.
As far back as I can remember, Claudia was always an elegant, well-spoken lady at family gatherings, often inquiring with kind curiousity about our studies and activities. Beneath the surface there might have been something to be upset about, but I can't remember ever seeing her ruffled. There's something to be said for having unflappable style, and surely it came in handy as a teacher and educator.
Our prayers go with you in the face of these twin tragedies. We shall all miss Claudia but we're grateful that her pain has ended, and her grand journey just begun.
My heartfelt sympathy go out to you Marti
and to all the family. She was such a valiant lady, and a hero to all she met.
