Cindy and i played poker at night online that's how we met. She invited us to come and meet her and Allen at the Drury Hotel. So my husband and i flew to New Orleans and stayed at the Hotel they stayed at. We liked both of them the moment we met. Albert was going with family to see the Saints game. We had a great time together, fun and laughter. The next time we met was at there 40th Anniversary which surprised the heck out of them. Wonderful memories i am left with. I am so sorry to the family for your loss. We now have an angle to look over all of us.
Love you,
Bill and Nancy Leblanc
