    Prior to meeting Uncle Bubba, as I had been advised was practically his given name, I was filled with loving stories from his nephew, Mark Soileau. With great anticipation of our formal ‘meet and greet’, I was in awe of Uncle Bubba’s calm, subdued demeanor. He appeared to be an old school gentleman as he listened intently with accumulated wisdom. Even within the confines of a few conversations, it were as if we had known each other for years.

    As time always has its way, it was evident Uncle Bubba’s health had been caving...neuropathy slowed him down of body, but certainly not of mind. He spoke in earnest of his beloved deceased wife of many, many years, Patsy, as if he were able to envision her in real time. He, also, lamented the brotherly relationship he experienced with his brother-in-law, Allen Soileau, speaking with exhilaration of long ago adventures. One situation recollecting of he and Allen wildly catching fish; another with a sheepish remembrance of an escapade involving a night out imbibing in few drinks...

    As life brings us all to our end, I believe Uncle Bubba is euphoric to be again united with his dearly loved Patsy. In leaving his earthly existence, he has left a beautiful legacy of humanity for family, friends and acquaintances to ponder for many years to come. May Uncle Bubba Rest In Peace.
