  3. To my cousins Larry, Wayne, Dicky, and your families I’m so sorry for your loss.Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I, mom and my grand- daughter had the pleasure of seeing uncle Carroll a few years ago and had a wonderful visit at Faye’s house. He also phoned us a few months ago and we planned to visit again this summer but God had other plans. He’s now reunited with all his brothers telling their stories as they did when they used to get together from time to time. May your memories give you comfort in the days to come.

  4. Condolences on your loss. Until 1961 my family lived next door to the Stanleys on Scott St. in LaMarque. Mr. Stanley was a kind and thoughtful neighbor.
