“Remembering Claudia”


Description from Violet: During the night a very dear friend of mine passed on, peacefully in her sleep..... she was 98......
This pick is not meant to be sad, but to remember all the lovely things about Claudia....
Her favorite colors were pink and purple, the bolder the better, favorite flowers, lilacs and peonies.... she had an amazing crystal perfume bottle collection, of which she gave to me... one of the things cute things about her was she loved to have the reddest lipstick on .... even the other day when I saw her, she wanted to make sure her lipstick was on.....
Claudia lived a very full and rich life.... she was a published poet, singer and song writer, and and artist, paintings and drawings.... I also have some of her poems , art, and her collection of music...
She was a joy to be around and made everyone laugh...she had a heart of gold..... now she is an angel and has definitely earned her wings....

    Such a bittersweet pick. Happy that she had such a wonderful, long, life and that she will never again feel pain, fear, or loneliness, sad because it will be a while before here loved ones see her again, but they will. She sounds like an amazing woman. My condolences to you and her other family and friends. She must have thought dearly of you to share such a wonderful collection – here’s to Claudia’s memory!
