Louis enjoyed coming to San Francisco to visit his brother (Lonnie) and sisters (Geneva & Mary) every September (Lonnie's birthday) and we would go to the Delta fishing along with my sister Janet. We all looked forward to his visit, because we knew the "party" was on. From the very first time I met, the mighty giant, Mr. Breaux, we were like friends of old. Our relationship with him and his family was like we all knew one another before. I'm so sorry that I'm unable to attend my "brothers" homegoing, my heart is heavy, but, I know, we will meet again. "Say hello to Lonnie for me Louis, today 2/14 would have been our 44th Wedding Anniversary, Oh, But God.
