  10. We are so sorry to hear of Mr. Landreneau’s passing. Although we didn’t have the privilege to know him personally, he was loved throughout our neighborhood. My husband and I purchased the house from he and Cressie a few years ago. We have received a condolence card in the mail addressed to Cressie and we would love to pass it on to her. If anyone has any information on how we can forward this, please let me know.

    With our deepest condolences,
