My Papa died when I was 7 years old, so all of the photos of him are from quite a while ago.

One of my favorites is him with Uncle Marcus (his brother – actually my Great Uncle) holding boiled crawfish, and a glass of beer. Mama said that this photos was taken in the ’40s.

Papa was a golfer, and I am happy to have some of his golf trophies. I had even more, but my car was broken into on Port Street in the ’80s, and a whole box full was stolen. I’m sure they didn’t mean as much to the thief as they did to me.

Aunt Ruth was Papa’s sister. Papa was the Men’s Department buyer and Aunt Ruth was the Ladies Department buyer for the family clothing store, LaBiche’s. I believe that Aunt Ruth’s husband, Armand Legendre, was the Shoe Department buyer. The whole bunch of them would go to New York a couple of times a year on buying trips.
