My condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Chatagnier. One can safely assume that "all Cajuns are related" and Mrs. Chatagnier is my 5th cousin twice-removed via her LeBlanc line. Her 3rd great-grandfather, Rene LeBlanc m. Marguerite Trahan was my 5th great-granduncle. One of Rene's sisters was Rose LeBlanc who became the 1st Acadian Nun in Louisiana [she is represented by figure #1 on the Acadian Memorial Mural] Rose and 3 of her sisters married 4 sons of Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil. Rose's husband and both their children died during the exile. Dudley LeBlanc was her 2nd cousin, once-removed.

Remembering the many visits as a young boy with my dad Ulric, Aunt Lou always had those Lil coverered tarts that I learned to love just like Dad. My visits and now memories were all good.
Aunt Lou is the last of a generation. I realized that as I read the list of her six sister and day who preceded her. They did their part now it is our turn who follow. Thank God we know there is a place prepared for us all who know Him.
