Dear Rick, Don, Kip, Kerry and Kelly
Sorry for your loss. Your Dad, Freddy Boudreaux and myself went to SLI and then LSU together and in later years worked together. Pet as we called him was a great friend and a great person. I am truly sorry I did not keep in touch with him and your mother after we moved from Baton Rouge. I know they are both in heaven. May God bless each and everyone of you and your family.
