C.J. was a great man. One of the smartest guys I ever knew. I was lucky enough to work beside him years ago. However even today when a mechanical problem occurs in my life I often say. What would CJ do? I am sorry we lost touch. I am sorry I could not attend funeral but I was in the process of moving from Louisiana. I wish Margie all the best and I know her children will take care of her.

My heart is saddened with the news of Mr. Butsy’s passing. My prayers go out to all the family. Just seeing his picture brought back so many memories from times back home on the River Road in Port Allen to the last visit when I brought Momma to see him and Mrs. Margie in New Iberia. I can actually picture his reunion with Momma and Daddy. What a joyous and loud reunion it must be! I know he is in good hands now. May God give each and everyone of you the strength to get through these trying times. My thoughts are with you.
