My condolences to the Diez family. Mr. Diez hired me to work part time at White's in 1978. It was my first job. He was a really nice guy.

What wonderful memories I have of Mr. & Mrs. Diez visiting them when they lived in Plaquemine. These two were probably the nicest folks I have ever known. They always welcomed you with open arms and had a smile on their faces. They raised an amazing and loving family and I love you all. I know you will find comfort in knowing he is at peace and with his all loving Father Jesus Christ. God Bless all of you.
