Memories Timeline


  1. I was so very sorry to hear about Mr Ken- He had to have been the best boss, anyone could have ever worked for-I remember that he would go out hunting before work and then come back in time for work and have one of the girls cook duck gumbo with some he had killed-I know times have changed but where would you find a boss like that-and then was able to visit with him by doing some of his yard work for several of the last few years he was the same kind,generous man I had worked for at THE ASSOCIATES, in Lake Charles. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

  2. I worked for you dad for over 10 years. Next to my father, he was one of the kindest, gentlest men I've ever know. I'm sorry I missed the services but did not learn of his death until today. MAY HE REST IN PEACE

  3. So sorry about the passing of Mr. Wyrick. He and your Mother were such great people. I tried to call you at the funeral home. May God be with you at this sad time.Love,Janet JohnsonHaughton, La.318-286-3966
