(I meant to post this the morning I heard the terrible news, but I was not able to blog during the week.)
I hate that I had to read the news of Claudette Yamin’s death today; I even have to check whether this is someone’s idea of a sick April Fool’s joke. As it turns out, it's not and that's just sad. :( I would like to express my condolences to Elliott for his loss.
A part of Elliott’s appeal to me was his relationship with his mother. She seemed like a feisty, yet sweet lady who’s just so proud of her son. I’m glad that she had the chance to see her son fulfill his dreams before she passed away. I know how tough this must be for Elliott and I’m wishing him all the strength to get through this.
