Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss of a good and fine man. I remember when he presented me the Ensminger Award at LSU-BR in 1982. I also recall when he, as chairman, interviewed me for a job with the Commerce Committee. In both instances, he made me relaxed and aware of what the award and the job was about.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of a fine and good man. I remember when he presented me the Ensminger Award when I attended LSU-BR in front of the SGA in the early 1980's. Then in the late 1980's he, as chairman, interviewed me for a job with the House Commerce Committee in the Louisiana Legislature. In both instances, he made me feel at ease as we discussed what the award was about and what the job involved. Dan
