Dear Aunt Da and family.......You and Mr. Dee has shared so much love with so many. You two were there for me in my hard times and allowed me to keep you as family. Trust that Life is one of God's greatest gifts but remember that Mr. Dee has taken the bridge to heaven to be with God in the ultimate home for us all. Our love for him will always remain in those hearts who knew him. My best wishes for peace to you Aunt Da and your loving family.
Always.....Linda

So very sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of Deebie. I worked with "Coach" for most of his and my career at Shell Chemical. He was one of the best operators and always ready to make you laugh. I enjoyed seeing him at all our Retiree's luncheons and will miss my old buddy. Prayers and sympathy goes out to the family. May God bless him and the family. Will try to make the services if possible.

So sorry for your loss,
Mr. Dee took me hunting, fishing and I really enjoyed all of the time we spent together.
Most recently we served together on the St. Charles Parish Coastal Wetlands Advisory Committee.
A truly really nice loving man!
