    My heart goes out to you my friend and I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. No one should have to endure this type of pain of losing their child. Losing someone in general is pain enough. I pray the pain lessens in time and you'll find healing. Know you are loved by many and we are all here if needed.

    Ledet's family; God bless each of you as you face one of life's hardest circumstances. His Papa, Frank, was my nephew. Eloise and Amy, we love you and hated to hear of Ledet's passing. May the good Lord bless and keep each one of you is our prayer. Let's all make plans to meet in heaven if we haven't already. I know Ledet would want to see each of us again.
