The LeGros family would like to thank the St. Joseph Hospice organization in Lafayette, Ms. Hattie Reece, Ms. Juanette Belaire and Michelle Broussard of Gueydan. We like to think of them as Angels sent from Heaven to care for our Father/Grandfather during his time of need for the last four months. There are no words to describe the awesome angelic love and care for these beautiful ladies gave to make his life peaceful, organized and healthy while cooking, cleaning his home and taking charge when needed to allow him to live longer than expected. Thanks for their love of him. Our family found new wonderful friends that will never be forgotten. Mr. LeGros was preceded in death by his parents, Pierre and Celeste Cashat LeGros, his wife; Irene Mary LeGros, two sisters; Ethel Istre and Mary Lou France, and two brothers; Joseph LeGros and Nick LeGros. In lieu of flowers the family requests that contributions be made to M. D. Anderson Cancer Research or the Cancer Research of your choice.

  1. Mr. Odgen is now in Heaven with Mrs. Irene and I know they are happy. We will miss him, just as we have missed Mrs. Irene. We were blessed to have them for neighbors for the last 39 years. We will keep them and their family in our prayers.

  2. Extending our deepest sympathy to you and your family at this time of sorrow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. Papa, thanks for teaching us to: laugh at ourselves, work hard and put in 110%, love with all of our hearts, give to others without ever asking for anything in return, let the little things go, have courage and never give up, love our family, love music, and appreciate our God-given talents. Mostly, thanks for teaching to walk in the love of Christ and to recognize His unabiding love and presence in our lives. We deeply miss you and Mama and await the day to get another big hug from Mama and another big smile from you. Have fun catching up with Mama, jamming with the Saints, and don't tire out trying to find things to tinker with in the house of the Lord!
