My deepest sympathies to the family. It was such a pleasure for me to meet Mrs. Budman , if only for the past 2 weeks; her strength and spirit were so inspiring, She had a smile and positive attitude each time I showed up for her physical therapy. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Claire and I shared many good times together at Ft Monroe. I was glad that we could have lunch with her and Al this past summer. She was very cheerful in spite of her illness and they were enjoying their apartment so very much. Maybe you can find some majong players in the heaven above. Vern and I will miss you.

To the family and friends:
I offer my deep condolences. 2nd Corinthians 1:3 we read: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation."

Claire was the perfect picture of a Lady..
I was fortunate to know her and enjoyed many hours of her company playing majong. She was a formitable oponent. We spend many delightful hours together with other friends.

We shall miss you every time we stack the tiles.
Happy trails my friend.
