Linda Lou, my memory of you and R. L. is that you were always together, and, most importantly, you stayed together. Seems laughter was always a part of your lives, and our days at McNeese and the "Ranch" were so special. We go our separate ways , but we never forget the impressions that special people have on our lives; and in that respect, it was your faith in the Lord and your devotion to each other that made a difference. You have a beautiful family and even though the days ahead will be difficult, I know that your abiding trust in our God will keep you and give your peace. You are in my heart and in my prayers with much love, Patsy

Mr. Webb was truly an amazing and caring man. A teacher that enjoyed what he did. I remember seeing him and his wife in the grocery store a few months back and I knew it was him right away. You could see the love that this couple had for each other. I will continue to pray for Mrs. Webb. Rest in peace good sir. You honestly earned your wings.

Mr. Webb was my favorite math teacher at LaGrange. He would always make sure everyone understood the material before moving on and his sense of humor was amazing. His class was never boring!
