Many fine folks pass through these doors daily and every once in a while there’s an extra special one. Claudine was one of those special people. Always a smile and loved to visit. It was a pleasure to see her and Bill coming up the sidewalk and we were blessed and honored to serve them. She will be greatly missed, love and prayers to the family. 🙏❤️
