    Mr. Octave was a fine man and a faithful Catholic. He represented our family in legal matters for many years and always treated us exceptionally well. I believe he attended daily mass because I never failed to see him when I attended on weekdays except for a week ago. I looked for him at St Landry and wondered why he wasn’t there; but prayed that he was doing well. I had great respect for Mr. Octave and know that he is at home with God.
