Eula, so many years we were friends...I remember how you watched over my twins when they were born. You were the best Mother-in-Law a person could have. Thank you for welcoming us into your Cajun family.

Mama , I called every day for the last two weeks and no one would let me talk to you. I had this feeling that something was wrong and I guess when I saw daddy standing at the end of my bed and he called my name I knew he was coming to take you to be with him. Your going to a better place where you will see everything beautiful. Ethel and I love you!
