Eldred and I send our sincere condolences on the death of Hugh. I have such warm memories of him. We shared so many classes and he called me his "secretary". I could write my notes and his in a short amount of time, and I always apologized for the penmanship I developed in haste.
I feel fortunate to have had you as a
sorority sister and Hugh as a very special friend. With love, Evelyn Bordelon Paternostro.
I am so sorry to learn of Butch's passing. Growing up next door to him on Octavia Street I was always keenly aware of his enthusiasm for life. My prayers go with him and with his remaining family.
(Trying again, same message -- let's see whether my name will be included this time.)
I remember Hugh as a brave, determined, and always cheerful person. I was glad to have the chance to see him, if only briefly, at our 40th and 50th Fortier reunions. Dianne, my best wishes to you in your grief at losing him.
His senior year, '57-58, was my Sophmore year. I volunteered to tutor. They set me up with Hugh to assist with his homework. All I had to do was read to him. But it was such a memorable occasion. And then to see him cross the stage gave me an extra joy. I was there for Ransdell Hebert, my then boyfriend, whom I eventually married.
Janet (Scheibe) Hebert
We were so saddened to hear. Our prayers are with you.
