Mr. Claude’s favorite poem was:

“Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush.

Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.”

The family request, if so desired, for memorial contributions o be made to Loaves and Fishes Community Meals for the Hungry, c/o Holy Name Catholic Church 508 Main Street Nashville, TN 37206.
