My heart and soul weeps for this gorgeous human being. I am at a loss and feel pain but on the same token am so glad that I spent some time in the summer of 08' with her. I am a student of hers from the mid 80s and she was a true gem. She drove me to Thibodeaux where she held my hand as I read my paper at a Folklore conference. God Bless her!!!
