I am so sorry to hear about Lionel. It wasn't very long ago he and Glenda met with my brother Dewey in Marksville. Dewey said they had a good visit & sent me your picture. My brother Dewey passed away also November 14th, 2018. Lionel was the only one in the family that reached out to us. I appreciate that very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Linda Burge (daughter of Alma Burge - sister to Luna Fontenot).
