Dear Susie and Luke,
It is often said that we must each answer two questions before we are allowed into Heaven. "Did you find Joy in your life" and "Did you bring Joy to the life of someone else." Without a doubt, Honey Babin can answer "YES" to both questions. When I think of the people who have been role models for me, I always include your Mom, Ms. Honey. She always had something interesting to talk about, something fascinating she was reading or learning or something new and exciting she was anticipating. I cannot express the Joy she added to my life and that I carry in my heart today through her example. Honey and my Mom wrote to each other and remained in touch as true friends. Her memories of Honey were a great joy in her later years. We have all been truly blessed by the life of Honey Babin. With loving thoughts, Betty (Collet) Steppe

Dear Susie, Lukie and Family,
How many fond memories come to mind of times spent with you at Grande Isle with your mom,dad and my parents and sister (along with a group of other girls). She was mom's dearest friend and I will cherish her memory deeply.
With love,
Val (Dugas) Hughes

My deepest sympathy to the Babin family. Ms. Honey was a very special person and was loved by everyone in the Troxclair family. I have fond memories of visiting with her when she was oil painting and she was always giving me and Rick Supple cookies or brownies. She was loved by all. My thoughts and prayers to all of the Babin family to help you through this difficult time.

Susie and Lukie,

Because of my family's intimate friendship with the Babins, your mom and your aunt Flo were able to pressure my dad into agreeing I might take music lessons in 1957 when I was 12 yrs. old. This happened at one of Papaw Babin's Sunday soirées featuring Flo and Honey on the piano and everyone else singing and dancing for hours to oldies like "The Sheik of Araby" . Your mom even gave me her student slot with Miss Dolores Mattingly, a Newcomb alumna, because she wanted me to have the finest music teacher in the area and to start right away, perhaps before my dad changed his mind. Honey picked me up many times to attend the community concerts in Donaldsonville. She encouraged me and inspired me to use my talents. What a blessing she was to me. That push to music profoundly altered my life as it was then. Music still occupies me and refreshes me. Her example has led me to advise many youth to identify and pursue their abilities and talents, musical and otherwise. May she rest in peace. Thanks Miss Honey. I'm planning to see you all Monday. Love, SPORT

I was saddened to hear about Ms Honey passing away. My thoughts are so special of growing up across the street. She was a big part of our family memories. I will always be thankful the kindness toward me and the special friendship she had with my mother. My prayers are with her family that God will comfort in a special way.
