Dear Donna ~ The news of your mom's passing saddened me greatly. She and I visited in passing at the post office in Sunset just a little while ago. She was always a charming, gracious person. I am so sorry for your loss. Please be assured of my thoughts and prayers for you and your family at this difficult time. How fondly I recall our days at Saint Ignatius, jumping rope, playing hopscotch, and chattering away while walking the sidewalks during recess. Good memories! May God bless and comfort you in your grief, my friend.

Donna, Don, Deborah, Jill and David and the grandchildren,
I'm so sorry that it was time for Aunt Doris to leave but I know she will be welcomed home with open arms and feel love beyond belief in heaven. I just wanted you all to know that I have the fondest memories of Christmas Day at Uncle Donald and Aunt Doris's home. I'll always cherish the times I had with her and with you all even though they were far and few between. I'm thankful for all the love and joy I had when I was around them. I had no idea she had so many siblings - amazing! I'll be praying for comfort and peace to surround you all.

I was so sorry to read about your mom's passing. I'm planning to attend the wake tonight but cannot make the funeral. I didn't realize your mom was from "down home" as I'm from Edgard in St. John the Baptist Parish and went to high school in Hahnville. Those names of your mom's sisters were so familiar to me -- Matherne, Tregre and Granier. What a small world! Your mom lived a long, good life and she's now reunited with your dad in heaven.

To Donna and family:
My heart goes out to you and your matriarch goes on to life with God. You have the inspiration of a life well-lived.
I have good memories of your time at Sts. Leo-Seton. Surely Doris came to enjoy grandparents' day with her beloved grandchildren.
God bless you all,
