I will never forget you Claude. You were very much a mentor, and a truly good friend to me. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations about science, the environment, and politics. We joked, we laughed, we commiserated together. I have never had a friend as quick witted, clever, and with a sense of humor such as you, and I suspect I never will again. There is a hole in my heart. I will always remember you for the rest of my life. May God keep you in his company until we meet again my friend.
