Memories Timeline


  1. Growing up around Miss Anna Mae was a joy. She was always smiling. And when you went to her house, you couldn't leave without eating or drinking something. I also remember Mr. Pete sitting in his chair watching TV. As kids, when we would trick-or-treat for Halloween, we were always brought in the house to get our candy. No handing it out on the porch and then leaving. She was a very loving a caring person. Will miss her.

  2. I will be traveling from Illinois and will not be back till late Monday but, I want to say how wonderful Anna Mae was to my brother, to me and to all the family. She happily showed her love to everyone. I will miss her and wish my sincerest regrets to all.

  3. Louise and family, so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother, grandmother. It looks like she lived a very long and successful life with a loving family. Praying God brings you comfort during this sorrowful but joyful time as you reminisce with each other of good times past and present. Love, Jill Breaux and family

  4. Mawmaw Primeaux was the sweetest woman I know next to my mother. I will always remember my childhood summers there, icebox pie, and Easter Sunday egg hunts. Gone but not forgotten,Melissa Breaux Duhon

  5. Mr. Denny and Ms. Patty we are so sorry for you and your families loss. Our prayers are with all of you. Please let us know if there is anything you need.

  6. Nancy and I were so blessed for all the time we passed with Aunt Anna Mae and with Uncle Pete, too. She showed so much love in everything. Laughter and friendliness seemed to come so easily for her. Once when we were visiting and she asked if we would like another round of coffee. Someone said, oh don't go to any trouble. Aunt Anna Mae told us with a huge smile on her face that making and serving the coffee was her job and if we didn't drink the coffee that we were putting her out of her job. We all laughed with her and of course enjoyed another cup of coffee. Aunt Anna Mae made the simple, daily things happy occasions. She is a joyous and important part of my life and my memories. Nancy I will miss her very much. We send our love, remembrances and prayers to all her family and friends.

  7. With time and memories may your Mother's love live on in your hearts and bring you comfort. My prayers are with all of you.Katie Sue
