My sincere condolences to the family. Aunt Sis as we called her was a very special person. We always looked forward to her visits. She was a precious person and she was a “people person”. She had the most beautiful personality. Always smiling, laughing, and telling some great story. Loved to hear her talk. She was a wonderful cook. I loved her Cajun dishes. She will be greatly missed. Now she’s “Dancing in the sky with the Angels. Love always, Cynthia Pigg
