He lived a truly inspired life. Meanwhile, I once ate five Oreos at the same time.

Maybe he just doesn’t know much about true LSU greats?

What an accomplished Tiger. But it's kind of sad that his 5 children combined to give him only 2 grandchildren.

Man, I thought he was just in ww2 but to survive the war fighting where he did is truly amazing.

He talked with us about his battle experiences once. At Okinawa, he carried a BAR 50 cal because of his size. He was a big man...even in his late 80's when I last saw him.

I don't know how you could have a more impressive obituary, if that makes sense. What a great person. Wow!!!

Because passing on DNA and pie recipes is really what life is about.
