  1. Candle 1Love you Aunt Damae, I will never forget every time you would see me you would tell me how beautiful I was and how much you missed my paw paw. Ole Danny Boy. Give him and a hug and kiss for me up there!

  2. Candle 4Aunt Domae!! I was so glad that I had the time and opportunity to visit you the last couple of times. I always loved visiting with you. I recall always being around your family and felt a part of it as well. I will miss you!!! Rest in Peace…
    Much love,
    Catherine (Cathy)

  3. Candle 3It was a joy, a pleasure, an honor and a blessing to have this sweet, lovely lady as my great aunt. She and Uncle J.E. gave us so much to cherish. We will miss her beautiful smile and loving personality. Thank youto Uncle J.E., Steven, Benny and Bryan for sharing thislovinglady with us. Our prayers, thoughts and love with be with you always.

  4. The thing I remember most about Aunt Hilda was how sweet, loving, caring and generous she was to everyone she knew, and even those she didn’t. She always had a smile on her face and was happy to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed one. Sundays were always special to me because after Church services everybody would gather at somebody’s house, eat fantastic cajun food, and the “old folks” would sit at the table afterwards and play cards. It was soothing to me hearing French being spoken and usually ended up with me falling into a deep sleep. I always felt like Aunt Hilda was a second mother to us when we were kids, or at least it felt like it. Trips to Lake Arthur will always be imbedded in my mind. My mother always thought of Aunt Hilda as a sister. She called her “her buddy”. If there are Angels on earth then Aunt Hilda would be one of them. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her and her dedication to her faith in God will bring those in Heaven to her with open arms, love and joy.

  5. Candle 1I will always remember when we would go to the casino when we visited and I would just sit back in the car and listen to mawmaw Cormier, Aunt Ruby and Aunt Dahme talk. I loved y’all’s Cajun accent so much. You were so sweet to me from the moment I met you and you welcomed me into the family immediately. We love you and you will be dearly missed
