Its hard for me to know what to say right now. All I ever did was tell stories to everyone about how I have the best Maw Maw ever and all of the funny memories and moments we shared. “Shes not a regular Maw Maw shes a cool Maw Maw” Many of them are of you dancing in the kitchen and us making food together and paw paw giving you the side eye from the next room while he watched football. Lol always driving him crazy. Many times we would sit on the porch and have talks and you would guide me in the right direction. Whether I listened or not you made sure I knew you loved me no matter what and there was never any judgement. I could come to you with anything. Many times you would tell me you weren't my real grandma and I would tell you I don't know what you're talking about you are the only Maw Maw Ive ever known and tell you to stop it. I hated when you said that because that wasn't true to me. You will forever be loved and the greatest Maw Maw. We love you. Heres a picture of you dancing in the kitchen as usual on Easter. Dropped something and found a moment to drop it like its hot. I can hear you now.

Momma Mel,
I was introduced to Mel (as I called her) at the age of 15 by my wonderful best friend, her beautiful and kind hearted daughter Kimberly Bergeron and she greeted me with arms wide open and I will never forget that day! She loved me from the very beginning for who I am supporting, championing, and loving me unconditionally. She was in fact a second mother to me. I spent many good times along side of Mel all thru my teenage and into my adult years. She taught me about life, love, forgiveness, and most importantly about Gods love for me ❤️

Cathy was very spiritual and always drew close to God always keeping him first. Cathy and I had a special bond. She loved my family like her own and we shared that same love among Mel’s family. In fact we all were and are considered family, that’s just how close we are. We laughed a lot, we joked, we cried, we hollered, we prayed, and this is just a handful of the memories that we shared. Cathy was along side of me when my aunt Gay Ann Ives passed on and she and I went to the funeral home and did my aunts hair and makeup together as a token of our love for aunt Gay. A memory not many would have the courage to do but she did and she did it gracefully with joy and happiness in her heart for my beautiful aunts celebration of life. Mel you will forever live in my heart, my mind, and my soul for all the beautiful memories I shared with you . I love you and I will miss you dearly, but I know you have another life to live now and until I get that day to reunite with you I love you with all my heart and soul. Thank you for leaving your legacy amongst my heart and my soul❤️

With loving arms wide open,
your adopted son Brent

It’s hard to know where to begin. Momma you didn’t give me the gift of life but life gave me the gift of you. You have always been known as my “momma” You came into my life when I was a child, having lost my own mother. How amazing you were to take on a single man with 3 girls and accept us as your own. Then Kimberly came along and has always been my lil “sister.”
I have so many great memories. Every Sunday, after church, going to Grandma and Grandpa Boudreaux house for family time and great food that you always had your hand in. You were there for all of my firsts, good or bad.
When my children were born they had the best grandma ever. None of us will ever forgot you mom! I know you are at peace and watching over every one of us. Love your daughter, Min (as she would call me)

My fave! You were like a second mom to me. Who's going to make me lasagna when I come to visit? I love you. I miss you! I'm glad you're not suffering anymore. I'll see you again one day. I'm going to keep ginger snaps in my cabinet as a reminder of you. Until we're together again. I love you 😘 Keep watch over my girl ❤️❤️

My dearest Aunt Cathy, I am searching for the words to say how much you mean at me. For as long as I can remember you have been such a bright light in this family. Your laugh, your personality, your love of life made you a person everyone loved. I am proud to be your niece, Lucy Bell, as you would call me. One of the 1st stories that come to mind was told to me because I was too young to remember but my mom said I was only a few months old and apparently you were playing and lifted me above your head, you opened your mouth to laugh and say yeah and I spit up right in your mouth! Kinda gross story but never the less funny!
I have so many memories of our trips to Mexico and you got swollen ankles from being in the van for soooo many hours. I remember you pressing down and seeing the indention and you said Oh my God Daddy, what is this! You were so scared! We hadn't seen anything like that before lol.
Every Sunday we would go to my grandparents house growing up and I remember you getting ready for your dates. You always had the most amazing eyelashes! I called them "Spider legs". You were ALWAYS late and your dates had to wait on you! I also remember Aunt Rita (my grandfathers sister) gave you Oil Of Olay for a birthday present one year! We all laughed about that! You had to be like 30! lol
My mom told me stories about you two being partners in crime! She said you both would hang out on the front porch swing and eat banana splits every day! Then after my mom moved you would come over and yal would sneak and eat pizza every day and my mom would make you go throw the box away under the neighbors house so my dad wouldn't find the box! My mom was suppose to be on a diet!!
I have so many fond memories of every being in St Bernard with the family. Even after I moved to Dallas, every time I would come in town I would make my way to the parish! I miss the holiday meals together and the hours of family time. I love you and will miss you always.
