Mrs. Broussard will always be remembered by all who knew and loved her. She had such a grand legacy, wonderful children, beautiful grandchildren and a blessed great grand child. Helping in caring for Marcus, Jason and Leah, gave me the chance to get to know your Mom. I loved your Mom, and Peanut loved your mother so much. I always felt like they were like two peas in a pod; don't ask them their thoughts on a subject, because, they will definitely tell you! She was quite a lady! My prayers are with you. We love you.
