We knew we were loved because mama told us so. One day I asked mama why Daddy never says I love you,and she said but he does, he tells you every day, just look at his hands! Then I knew. Words don't count all that much, what he does when he works is proof! He had big hands, even though he wasn't a very big man. But I knew he loved us. In recent years his callused hands got softer and so do his heart-he. Couldn't work as hard but he said "I love you" more often! Thank you daddy for the man that you were,thank you and mama for loving us and all the sacrificing that proved it. I'll see you again someday, may the circle be unbroken...RIP, I will always love you, Debbie

Dear Linda, Gloria, Debbie and Brother,
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Uncle Vic. I remember getting excited when we were kids going to visit our "Aunt Mae & Uncle Vic". I am sorry I was not able to be there for his service. I know many were there to say goodbye to a very special man. It seems like he had such a full and happy life.
With deepest sympathy...Brenda Breaux Evans

Uncle Vic,
We really will miss you! Since, I was a baby living next door to you, I will always remember smelling that fiberglass. Also, we will never forget how you would come over and buy shrimp from us and tell Rudy what he was doing wrong with his fiberglass.

Paw Paw,
You will be greatly missed by all. Thank you for all the time and stories that you shared with us. Most of all thank you for the love you gave to us and know that you are loved so much by us. You lived a long blessed life and blessed us each day you were here with us. I know you are in your place in heaven and are at peace. It is hard to let you go but I know you are surrounded by loved ones and we will meet again one day.
Love you always, Cindy, Jason, Connor and Addison

Maw Maw Millie,

Linda,Gloria,Debbie,& Lil' Vic,& Family
I was so sadden to hear of your Dad passing away.I know of the sorrow that lies ahead for you.Know that you will be in our prayers.I feel an attachment to your family, even though we were not closely related.One by one God is calling home some of our greatest patriarchs.His generation had such wisdom, maybe not in books but in living,and experience,and heritage that is dying with them.How I regret not asking more or watching them while I had the opportunity.It is now forever to late,we can't go back..But let this change me to be more inquisitive before others from that era also leave us and take their knowledge with them.

Family Ties
Down here we say goodbyes to our loved ones,thru all the pain,it's so hard to be strong.But God heals a wound when the circle is broken,and we'll see them again,it won't be long.

Famiy Ties won't be in Heaven for we'll all be together on that shore, there won't be no goodbye to bring tears to our eyes for the circle won't be broken anymore.

In Heaven we won't know Separation. Mom & Dad won't never have to go away. But we'll all be a part of God"s Great Family Circle. There with Jesus we're united to stay.
