To the Normand Family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the many friends of Muriel. We can all look forward to a world without the pain and suffering of losing a precious life as promised in the Bible at Revelation 21:4 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14. May God comfort your hearts, 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17. My deepest sympathy.

I remember Ms Lou as a beautiful, wonderful lady. She was devoted to her church, St Mary Assumption in Cottonport, LA. I was especially touched by her skill in framing pictures. She did several of our daughter’s posters from different occasions. She always did a beautiful job. I will remember you Ms Lou forever, RIP!
