Love and hugs to all who knew Claudette. I met her as an Elder, for when she opened and closed meetings in a good way, with the Ontario Aboriginal Housing Support Services. Claudette was kind, considerate, knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and oh so much more. She taught me a few things in the short time I knew her. Again, love and hugs. Aakuluk Claudette, you are loved.
