Posted: 8/19/2019 4:00 PM

Governor Kathleen Blanco will always be remembered as a Lafayette treasure. I had the personal privilege of observing and learning from her firsthand. Every issue that came before her received her full attention and thoughtful deliberation. Her gracious demeanor will serve as her legacy, and is one that we should all strive to emulate. She was an extraordinary person; a compassionate and dedicated leader; a devoted wife and mother; a matriarch to both her family and all Louisianians; a person of deep faith. She will be truly missed.
