Dear Connie, may God bless you and your family. So sorry to hear of Kermit's passing. I've known Kermit my entire life, and I have only pleasant memories of him. Prayers are rising to Our Lord for you.

Ms. Connie & Erica, I'm so saddened to hear of your loss. You've been in constant thought & prayer the last few days. I'm sorry that I'm unable to be there with you today, but I will visit soon. Mr. Kramer was a wonderful teacher who became an even greater personal mentor after my dad's untimely death. Although he & my dad may have never met here on earth, I'm certain that there in Heaven, my dad has already introduced himself & extended a big thank you to Mr. Kramer. Thinking of you with much love & praying for you.

He had a great sense of humor I live in Thibodaux and I would see him now and then when he was working in Thibodaux and definitely would say hi and talk of course. He would always ask how my mother, Mabel is doing. And of course I would ask about you and your family. He was thoughtful, kind and loving. May God be with you and Erica during this sad time. Prayers for you and your family will be placed in my personal prayer box and I will light my blessed candle too.
With deepest sympathy

So very sad to receive a call from my sister "Carol" to tell me about our cousin "Baby Kermit" passing. May he rest in peace and enjoy being with family and friends who have gone before him. The years just fly away and you always think that we have the time to go visit our love ones - maybe tomorrow - but then tomorrow never comes - then we are left with a heavy heart because we didn't take the time when we were still blessed to be able to show our love to one another. Just Me ... "Katie"

Connie, I truly enjoyed my friendship with Kermit. He had such great sense of humor and was always willing to listen or to give me a lesson in the finer points of Louisiana law. Thanks to him I can use the term "Usufruct" intelligently and not even feel like I am swearing. He will be missed. Maureen and I will keep you in our prayers

Rest in Peace "Baby Kermit". I have so many great memories of visiting both our grandparents and Connie's family as we grew up around Lutcher. That corner of the street was always so loud, the whole city knew we were visiting. We shared so many good times, and I wished we could have shared even more. You were always so respected in your youth and even more as an adult, husband and father. I wish your entire family peace in accepting GOD'S WILL in calling you home. You will be missed and always loved by Carol Sanders, one of your cousins.
