His sister, Valdora Jennings, survives.

Claude was a valued member of the Ridgewood Terrace staff.  We miss his warm smile and personality.

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And the rain fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand
