Beverly and Family, we are very saddened and shocked to hear of C.J.'s passing. Beverly, we met you, C.J. and Donna at the Boutte Bingo Hall. We immediately took a liking to all of you. All of you were so kind and loving. We could tell that you are very good Christian people with a love of your family. We are very sorry for your loss and we are sure C.J. is resting in Heaven with our almighty Father. May God give you all the strength and strong faith needed at this time and in the future.

As we grew up on Louisiana Street in Westwego, La. we all knew one another and was like one big family. But, our friendship did not end there. C.J. and his beautiful loving wife Beverly chose me to their daughter Donna's god mother. It has been an honor to be her Nanny. C.J. had a wonderful giving family who loved him very much and he will be missed every moment of their lives and all who knew him even for a little while will always remember the kind, giving person he was. My sincere sympathy goes out to all of his family and friends. Rest in peace C.J. Heaven has gained another angel. Tom and Amelia Whitted
