The day we went to lake varrett , we were hanging out that day and he asked me you know where Lake Varrett is I replied I sure do. I am pretty sure he told me he never been I told him we gotta go we grabbed the boat loaded up and off we went we launched in little Grand bayou and headed towards the lake I showed him the different places around the lake where we all go camping at, he said it was the
Most beautiful place he ever saw it was the place our parents grew up on. He said I am going swimming it's hot he dove off the boat came up with mudd on his head we both started laughing he said I thought it was deep that was the best day we had hanging out together miss you cousin. Donnie Lejeune
