Dear Ya Ya,

So sorry to hear about your sister's passing. Always wondered if we were related on my grandmother's (Zoe Berard Dugas) side of the family.
I think about you often and how you mentored me when working for Burt Willis.
God bless you and your family.

It is so very sad to read of Ms Euniva's passing. Having worked at the Clerk of Court's office while in high school and then working as a Petroleum Landman, I relied on Ms Euniva's amazing knowledge of the public land records and where to find the necessary documents. Her paintings of various scenes around St. Martinville were very simple yet dramatic at the same time. It was always a joy to view her artistic creations. May she rest in peace!

What a privilege and joy to have known and been a friend of Eunie. Her smile and laugh were real, and the generous sharing of her art keeps her spirit alive in our lives. Surely, she will rest in peace.

Condolences, dear Ya, and to all of your family.

Will always remember eating gingerbread and drinking coffee after Saturday mass with Uni and Yaya at Mary Berard's. We enjoyed many stories together. Rest in peace.
