Harry Broussard, my great uncle was a very great man.He always had a smile on his face where ever he went. He was one of those people you will never forget. He had an amazing personality. I always think about him and I always will. I will keep him in my prayers. I love him and miss him dearly, but know he is happy and safe in heaven sitting next to Bubsy Lou, the best dog ever.

I am so sorry of Harry passing away. I/ve known Harry for a long time. Just saw him at our reunion. We had great times together during school. I moved away for a long time & didn't get to see him much after that. I'm shocked & so sorry. James clooney

Uncle Harry, I miss you already. While saying goodbye to you was incredibly hard, I'm honored to be your niece. Joyous, smart, funny and charismatic are just a few words that come to mind...I know heaven welcomed you with open arms and big smiles. I love you, until we meet again...

I has the honor and privilege of knowing Harry for over a decade . Harry was one of those rare individuals you couldn't leave without laughing or having a smile on your face. The world will be a poorer place without Harry in it. He was liked by many and loved by more . He lived his life the way Jesus thought him to and it is reflected in the love his family and the community had for him. I hold steadfast to this one Truth; that one day I will see Harry, my daddy, and my daughter again. God Bless You Uncle Harry
