Lisa, Paula, Pepper,
I’m sorry for your loss. Your mom was one of the original and most colorful residents of Scofield. She leaves behind countless memories and rich stories to tell. When your sadness subsides, I hope you will find comfort as you recall those times.
Sending my sympathy,
Sue

After nearly five decades of friendship, it is hard to imagine that you are not still just down the street. I remember all of our good times together.
Love,

Lisa, Pepper, Paula, and family,

I am sorry for your loss. I will always remember the days of the "Scofield Gang" and "The Crowd" which your mom was such a major part of. See opened her home to everyone to host block parties, New Year's Eve parties, and pool parties for all the summer holidays. She was always a great friend to my parents, and for that I am grateful. God Bless all of you, and you have been in my prayers.

Ronnie & I are very sad to hear of the passing of Toni Tregre. We have spent many years celebrating wins and losses at Saints Games, sitting near them, Toni & Paul and their family, at Superdome. We didn't know her other then the Saints Games, but knew she was a lovely lady, always smiling and having best time at games with her family. We will keep Paula and Pepper and your families in our prayers. Cathy and Ronnie Newman
