    I will always remember the Broussard family, as I was there quite a bit, listening to Press read the Encyclopedia, at about 3 or 4, what a gift....Cindy, and Marsha usually fighting over make.up, just a typical family!!! I know she was so happy when Cindy, and Marsha grew up to be best of friends!!! One thing you could always see, is the love between her, and her wonderful husband!!! I have to smile now, thinking ? of them reunited in Heaven Forever!!! Rest In Peace Sweet Dorothy!!!

    Our deepest condolences to Dorothy’s family. I have such fond memories of growing up with the Broussard’s. My Mom, Darnella and Dorothy were friends since First Grade and now are at Broussard’s Mortuary at the same time. As sad as it is for all of us, it is a comfort knowing they are together watching down upon us happy and peaceful.. Love, prayers and hugs are coming your way.
