My fondest memories with him are him sharing his duck carving collection and his garden. And, of course, Ms. Annette was at his side bragging about his talents. And, both of them were always proud of their children and grandchildren. My prayers as you celebrate and remember his beautiful life and your beautiful family. Sincerely, Lauren Lemmon

My prayers are with the Matherne and related families. I will always remember the way he greeted me at church at Holy Family as if he'd known me all his life. A fine, Catholic family man.

I am saddened by the passing of my beloved uncle. I will always remember the great times that we shared together. He had a wonderful life surrounded by family and friends. He loved playing cards and could cook up a mean batch of crawfish and crabs. Many of my fondest memories growing up are of my Uncle Buster and Aunt Annette and the loving they generously showed to me as a child and throughout my life. My prayers are with our whole family at this time of sorrow and my love goes out to my cousins in their time of grief. God Bless You All - Love Ginny Matherne

Papa Buster always brought a warm enthusiastic relationship to family and friends. One of my memories of him was when he cooked a type of cajun gumbo using meat from all his hunting kills. He told me to just spit out the buckshot and don't ask what kind of meat was in the pot. We Ioved him dearly.
