    Truly a tragic and sad day. We spent a wonder 3 weeks hunting with Claude at Makuya Park last fall. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. You will be missed!

    Claude took my wife and I on our first safari in 2004. His passion for hunting and teaching his clients the ways of the bush and his utmost respect for the animals was second to none.
    He will leave a big pair of boots to fill in the hunting community.

    I did not know this Gentleman, but it appears he was very well respected and will be sorely missed by many.

    Godspeed.

    It saddens me to hear of this incident. My heart goes out to his family and friends as they contend with the loss of Claude. It reminds me tomorrow is not guaranteed for any of us. I am comforted in hearing Claude was a Christian.

    It is an awesome thing when one comes to see their need for a relationship with Jesus Christ. We recognize we have sinned against God. It is our sins that separates us from God and lead us to God's righteous judgment of sin.

    Romans 3:23 All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Roman 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Because of God's great love for us he sent his son Jesus Christ to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Our faith in Christ Jesus' death and resurrection assures our salvation. Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

    Because of Claude's faith he is in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is in a place without tears, without suffering, and without pain. Claude is walking the streets of gold in paradise and his loved ones can draw comfort in knowing they will see Claude again in Heaven.
