My kids and I lived next door to Mr and Mrs Keb and they quickly became like cherished grandparents to us all. Mrs Keb especially reminded me so much of my own dear grandmother, with all her loving and caring ways. She will never be forgotten by myself or my family. Thoughts of love and prayers go out to her family today as they mourn her loss. May god comfort you all. We love you Mrs Keb.

I was Willie Kebodeaux pastor for 35-years.She Was a faithful member of Calvary Baptist Church. She could cook stuffed crab better than any restaurant,and she always said Brother Darnell you are my preacher. I will surely miss seeing you every time we visit Louisiana and drinking a cup of coffee with y’all. I loved you, our loss is your gain. See you on the other side !

Aunt Willie lived in Louisiana; we live in Mississippi. She was the sister of my Daddy who passed away at the young age of 40 years. I always tried to stay in touch with his family out of respect to him. Aunt Willie was faithful too about staying in touch and letting us know that we were in her prayers. I loved her so much. She loved all of her family so much and she never failed to thank God for his blessings. Thank you Heavenly Father for her.

My condolences go out to the family, My heart is saddened Willie was my Western Dr. Mommy. I was friends with Charlotte and David and Mitch. I remember Willie had this car it was an older model Green Rambler. She had to sit on a big pillow to be able to see over the stering wheel and put a board behind the seat to hole it up but that did not stop us. She would let us use it to go to the New Moon drive-in But we had to make the beds first and clean and a few others things but I won't tell all. I am so glad to be a part of this family allway in my heart, God Bless
