I just learned about Lydia's passing from a grade school friend. Lydia and I were good friends through our grade school years but lost touch when she and her family moved to Ruston when we were in eighth grade. My memories are of a kind and gentle friend with whom I shared many fun times...from going to movies, to playing ping pong at her house, sharing books and just playing outdoors in the wild Cameron Parish prairies and pasture lands. I regret not keeping on touch. I am thankful for the memories. Rest well my dear old friend.

So sorry to hear about Lydia's death. My family has known hers for many years, going back to when Mr. & Mrs. Dickerson taught in the Jackson Parish school system, long before Lydia, Byron and I were even born. Lydia and I became good friends after my family moved to Ruston & that friendship continued on through college as sorority sisters and beyond. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Lydia was in Political Science 201 our sophomore year. We had the dreaded professor who couldn't stand sorority girls, and Lydia had on her AXO jersey. He asked her a snide question about being in a sorority, and she promptly hit me in the back and said, "Kim's an AX too."
