My favorite memory of Reuben was the Ponchatoula High football
Games and cheering him and the team members on to victory.

One of my most treasured memories of my dad is dancing with him as a little girl. Daddy would pick me up & always hold me close & dance with me just as he did with my mom. Matilda was always “ our song” or at least the one I remember most. I had the privilege to do it one last time at my wedding.
