Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 4My thoughts and prayers are with you Lori, and family, as you go through this hard time. The Laughlins all were a remarkable family, and have left many memories for us. Aunt Audrey, and all her sisters and brothers and their husbands, and wives, were fun loving, and kind to me. Marvin’s mother, Vivian, took care of Karen and Brenda often when they were small, so I think Marvin looked at them like sisters. God bless all of you. Love, Nadine Porche Kebodeaux
