My deepest sympathy to Claudette's family and friends. I was a friend of Bill sr. and my son Mark went to high school with Bill Jr.. I only saw Claudette a few times when she was with Bill. I know that she liked to be called Claudette.
I know Bill Sr. and Claudette are together once more.
A good friend :
