  1. It is a very sad day for us Louisiana to have lost a great man. He will be true miss. We will never have another Governor Edward. For he was truly one of a kind. My Aunt Lucy Broussard, work for him when he was a Attorney in Crowley so our family knew him. Yes, we loved our Governor. Our prayers goes out to his families, and we will keep them in our prayers. God Bless, keep strong and know that Louisiana loved Our Governor Edward.

  2. Loved his sprit and his truth about himself and anything, he made my whole family laugh with his colorful sprit on anything and anyone that’s why he will always be my governor.
    Now make them laugh in heaven my governor 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🕊
