On a visit to my house in Metairie from Houston, L.J. and I stayed up until around 4 am talking because L.J. felt that his cigarette and beer had to both finish at the same time. Lots of other great memories, but this one especially always makes me smile. What a sweet, wonderful man. My thoughts and prayers are with Ed, Ace and all of LJ's family. Love, Cindy
