Memories Timeline


  1. David, I am so sorry that you lost your mother. I lost my mom a few years ago and so I know what you are going through. Please know that you and your family will be in my prayers!!Jeanne

  2. Florette was one of my best friends who consoled me many times and was always generous in taking the girls to school and sharing her delicious vegetables with us. Glenn, David, Dwight and Anthony, I am so sorry about your mother and wish I could be there with you at this difficult time. I've been ill and am unable to travel but will be there in spirit. We will have masses said in her memory. Love, Miss Hope and Mr. Rod

  3. Mom and I were so very fortunate to have been able to call your mom our friend. She was so nice and kind. She always made us feel welcome, even including us in your family holiday dinners! We started several years back going out to dinner every once in awhile the two moms and David and I. We always enjoyed the time we spent together. Thank you for letting me spend time with her and you these last few days as she was beginning her journey home. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  4. Mrs. Comeaux taught me an important lesson in life – to always give of yourself to a friend in need. For eleven years Mrs. Comeaux drove us back and forth to school since my mother did not drive. Mrs. Comeaux contributed to my education by making sure I physically arrived at school but she also contributed to my moral and emotional education by demonstrating every day how to be Christlike in helping out a neighbor. She was a steadfast friend to my mother and a gardener and cook extraordinaire. Her physical presence will be missed but her legacy lives on. We wish we could be at the service but we will be praying with you long distance at 7pm. A donation to the Alzheimer's Association will be made in her memory and your dad's. Love, Mona, Henry, Andrew and David
