Family;
I am sorry for your loss.
Juggy and I were in the lower grades together. We were both smarter than the teachers; Ha-Ha. We were good friends.
I moved from DeQuincy when I was about 13.
God Bless all of you. Jimmy W. Dunham

Belinda -

I have fond memories of your dad from when he served on our Planning Board! He was such a nice gentleman and knew north Calcasieu Parish so well, thanks to his outdoor hobbies!

Please know that Lance and I are praying for you and your family.

Dear Ms. Shirley and Family, So sorry I was unable to come see you all personally but have been sick. Just wanted you all to know that we thought a lot of Mr. Juggy and feel he was a very special man. My husband John still talks about when they were kids and lost their home to a fire, how Mr. Juggy bought him clothes and made sure they had food. This is just one example of what a truly special man he was. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May GOD be with you all during this hard time. Sending Love.
