I was so saddened to learn of Claudia's passing.  She was absolutely one of the most fun gals that I had the priviledge of hanging out with in Junior High and High School.  Memories of Claudia definitely include plenty of adventure!  Living only a couple blocks away from each other in North Mankato, meant that we shared many a late night together, with one of us running home in the dark, hands over our head, as we frequently saw bats swooping from the trees at night on Wall St.  I send my condolences to Claudia's entire family, knowing how very blessed we all were to have known and shared life with Claudia.  She was one of the most caring people....even back then, when she was a teenager.  She will be missed by many, and thought of with only the fondest of memories!  May God bless her family with comfort and strength.  Barb Mueller Hilburn
