May the Boggs family have my deepest sympathy for your loss. Please rely upon the God who gives comfort to all. Please sleep in peace.
Your Mother was an exceptional woman and will be deeply missed. I met her only once: on December 5, 1967. It was a dinner party at your parents' home for Lynda Bird and Chuck and members of their wedding party. . . President Johnson was not expected to be there but he did indeed arrive. That memory of a gracious and elegant hostess remains. Mrs. Boggs was as gracious to me as she was to the President of the United States. God bless you and your family, Mary Ruth Hassett (formerly Coleman).
My deepest sympathy to the Boggs Family. Many years ago Mrs. Boggs helped resolve a problem for me. She was truly a Great Lady and will be missed.
Dear Ms. Roberts: In 1998 I had the privilege of meeting your mother in Malta to celebrate the Order of Malta's 900th anniversary. We had breakfast at the same table one morning. When I told her I belonged to the Hungarian Association, she immediately asked that I introduce her to Paul Tar, whom she found "so attractive", and who was her counterpart from Hungary at the Vatican. I gladly obliged that evening during a formal reception. Your mother and the Tars became fast friends as a result. Please accept my deepest sympathies, and convey the same sentiments to your family. Margit Serenyi, DM, Hungarian Association, Potomac, MD.
Thanks for sharing your mother with us.
May the greatest comforter enfold you in His arms and comfort you. May the beautiful memories of your mother always warm your heart.
When I was a graduate student in New Orleans, I did my internship at the VAMC in the 80s(it was a no pay internship)and I wrote Mrs. Boggs and explained to her that I was a single parent who was finishing my Master's Degree in Counseling. I asked if she could help me find money while to assist me during the summer. I don't know how she did it but the next day when I went to work, they called me in the office and money was available (I was given bus tokens also). I appreciated her then and now. She made a difference. As a Career Coach I encourage students to do everything they can do to further their education and to ask for help.
Thank you, Mrs. Boggs, for all that you have done for Louisiana. Peace be with you and your family.
I she was more than a gracious,lovely southern lady I think she was saint among us, what an example she was in so many ways to all of us.
In grateful remembrance for her kindness to our mom, Evelyn McKendall.
M.M. Haydel & Family
Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Mrs. Boggs was a wonderful philanthropist and humanitarian that will be missed
God bless you all for sharing your mother with us.Mrs,Lindy Boggs was a very kind an warm hearten lady. May she rest in peace.
I am saddened by your going home. You were such a gracious and loving lady. May God bless you and deepest condolences and love to your family.
Your family has my deepest sympathy...she helped us get our VA loan for this house 36 yrs. ago...when it was denied...house is now paid off...May God Bless your family.
What a great loss of a gracious lady who got things done. I had a situation while Ms Boggs was in Congress. Others could never get anything done but Ms Boggs within 30 days straightened things and I was able to continue. I forever owe her a great debt. My prayers and thoughts go out to Cokie and the rest of the family for your great loss. God bless you all.
A great lady, Mrs. Boggs, who truly will be missed by all; a "lioness" for justice.
I remember Lindy as an effective pioneer for legislation for women's issues. At the first ever, National Conference on Women, Houston, 1977, I was chairing a workshop on the need for federal programs to help victims of domestic violence. My hotel room phone rang at 7 am and it was Congresswoman Boggs from the airport in New Orleans saying she wanted to attend the workshop, was about to board a plane for Houston, and what was the building and room number of for the workshop. As the workshop got underway 4 hours later, the door opened and in walked Lindy!! Her compassion and warmth in speaking with workshop members made the workshop tingle and smoothed the way for the eventual passage of the legislation (1985). The original bill was cosponsored by Rep. Newton Steers, (R-MD), and Barbara Mikulski (D.MD).

TO THE BOGGS FAMILY, MAY GOD COMFORT YOU DURING THIS TIME. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL DAILY.
My Condolences To The Family Of Lindy Boggs. She's A True Sister In Christ. May God Be With You On Your New Journey. R.I.P. My Sister
We miss your courage, beautiful lady. We offer our condolences to your family. We trust your soul is with the Lord and we will keep you and your family in our prayers.
My condolences to the family of Congresswoman Lindy Boggs, may she RIP. I will never forget the positive help you gave me in 1976.
The family of Mrs. Boggs have my prayers. She was such a great lady. She's in Heaven with Almighty God.
She was a beautiful person known for her grace and genteel Southern charm and she took great care of her constituents. God Bless Lindy Boggs.
I was press secretary for Congressman F. Edward Hebert when the plane carrying Hale Boggs disappeared over Alaska. I sat in on a very emotional meeting between Lindy and Hebert when she asked him for help. Hebert called Secretary of Defense Mel Laird, a good friend. That spurred a search by the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard to find any evidence of a plane crash. Nothing was ever found. Lindy courageously moved on, won his seat in Congress and served with distinction for many years. She was a Great Lady.I feel privileged to have known her and her husband. God bless and keep you both.
Lou Gehrig Burnett

Dear Boggs Family,
Our family extends our deepest sympathies to your family. Your beloved mother was an inspiration to many women throughout the United States and in Europe as well. She was truly an amazing woman who was a good and faithful servant to the end. She made a difference in the lives of many Louisiana's and all the people that she served across our country. With each position she was appointed or elected, Lindy rose to the occasion with grace,intergity,commitment and professionalism.
May these cherished memories with your beloved mother bring your family peace and comfort now and always.
As we celebrate her rich and long life of government and public service we salute a truly Great American Lady who was an example to all.

May God's grace continue to be with your family at this time as we all celebrate her home going to our Lord.
I admire you so much, you inspire me to care for my city. With love and respect

When ever they said it couldn't be done.
you could look around and Mrs. Boggs would be doing it. Amazing woman! Kind and Gentle. Thank God and the family for lending her to us. May she R.I.P.
Louisiana has lost a 'TRUE DARLIN' and NO ONE shall EVER walk in her shoes. I feel blessed that she crossed my path and always took the timeto relate past memories. She will be GREATLY missed, but Cokie is ever bit her mothers' child-the legacy WILL continue through her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. lindaBREWERtalbert
In New Orleans The Boggs were a household name. Lord did they serve the citizens of La. Now God needs his kingdom to be also blessed. Continue to share those pleasant memories of such great parents. Be Blessed both of you .
Ernest M. Johnson
Lindy was a wonderful and gracious lady with a amazing memory for names and family ties...We need her kind of wisdom and grace in congress today.She was always willing and able to help when called ...We are all very fortunate to have had her so long.
Ms Boggs was one of the great leaders of the United States of America. Mrs. Boggs closed the doors to discrimination, and opened the doors to opportunity. My Condolences to the Boggs Family.
i met her in congress in 79 and she was so gracious, i remember her introducing her then small grandkids as if they were princes of Denmark, i'm glad she's gotten her reward. Best to the kids, Cokie and Tommy. Dean
I believe Mack Gordon said it best when in 1942 he wrote these classic lyrics to Harry Warren's score:
"There will be other songs to sing;
Another Fall, another Spring.
But There Will Never Be Another You"
your"Algiers Republican friend"
Cokie and Thomas your mother's passing is very sad. I have fond memories of your mom and dad that I called Aunt Lindy and Uncle Hale as a child. I remember helping at your Dad's campaign headquarters in Metairie. My parents were Mr. And Mrs. C Ray Edmonds (Helen). Your mom would come and check on me when I was asleep during parties at our house. One time I remember I called Aunt Lindy Mom. So your mom's passing happening years later but the same week of my mom really got to me. Aunt Lindy was truly a magnificent woman and one that I have admired through the years. Most knew Aunt Lindy as a public figure I was fortunate to know her on a personal level as a child. You both are in my thoughts and prayers to stay strong in the days to come. Your mother would want you two to be strong.
"Well done good and faithful servant well done!" Thank you for your service and commitment to our community.
Dear Cokie, I am deeply saddened to know of Lindy's death. I will always be grateful for her friendship and her support of the American Architectural Foundation and the American Institute of Architects during my tenure there. Lindy's contributions to our native state are legendary but most of all I will remember her kind, generous and always thoughtful ways.
Sue joins me in expressing our deepest sympathy to you and the whole family. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have shared treasured times with Lindy.
Norman L. Koonce FAIA
Our family and community's thoughts and prayers are with the Boggs children. Lindy was a bright light of hope in a dark world , a world much the better because of her tireless efforts to enrich the lives of those less fortunate . She was an inspiration for all, and she will be sorely missed ! Martin Regan & Family , Metairie , La.
she was a truly great lady ay she rest in peace
We lived in Alaska when the
plane went down with your dad and Senator Begich went down and did a lot of praying. You do not know me at all all but I just want you to know I was very sorry to hear of your mom's passing--I feel as if I know you God bless your entire family.
Great community and civic leader.
To the Boggs family make The Lord be with you in this time of sorrow,I grew up in New Orleans and I always think of Mrs Boggs has a very fair Lady to all.Thank you for your service to so many people.We will miss this Lady.God Bless
I remember Mr. and Ms. Boggs from the late 60's early 70's. My father was connected through politics. Although they never kept in touch after Mr. Boggs death, Ms. Lindy sent my parents a Christmas card with a short note until about 15 years ago. She remembered them all those years later and they never forgot her and Mr. Boggs and how special they both were. May your family take comfort in knowing how much everyone admired her. Your family is my prayers.
I was in line at Casamento's restaurant a few years ago as was Mrs. Boggs. She stood in line just like all the other hungry customers. I overheard remark "this place hasn't changed in 45 years"
She was with 2 pretty young girls and was dressed very nice and of course had her heels on. A great memory for me.
Thomas and Charlotte Hyde & Family will always remember Mrs. Lindy Boggs for her great work in The Civil Rights Movement and her service to the people of Louisiana. She will be missed. May GOD give the Boggs Family The Peace that surpasses all understanding.
A sweet and special person...A remarkable blessing here on earth for us all to enjoy for so many years. A life well lived and a rest well earned....We thank God for his gift of her to us and rejoice that she and her beloved husband are now together once more. God Speed, Ms. Lindy, God Speed.
Rosalind, John, Chip and I convey our prayers and sincere condolences to the Boggs Family on the loss of this truly wonderful woman. She will be deeply missed here but warmly welcomed in Heaven. We have asked the Jesuit Community in London to remember her in their masses.
Benedicat tu Lindy, requiescat in pace!
The duQuesnay-Kirk Family
Tommie and Cookie, you both have my deepest sympathy and great gratitude from me and my family, for sharing your mother with us. She was a beautiful, knowledgeable person, who taught us all a lot. God has a good place in his kingdom for her.
Few people have the ability to treat every person as a personal friend, while making sea changes to the betterment of mankind. Lindy did that through her personal advice as well as through her service to our country. Her gracious presence and genuine love of all will be deeply missed. Rest in peace, Lindy. Prayers to your family.
Lindy was a great supporter of our Community, the Eucharistic Missionaries of St. Dominic, and our ministry.
May she be enjoying the fullness of God's life and love.
Thank you Ms.Boggs for your great work both as a congressman and ambassador for our country. May your family be comforted by God in their time of need.
My condolences to the family of Mrs. Boggs. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Cokie and Tommy, You dont's remember me but I am the daughter of Eddie Hebert who was in Congress with your father. He and Mr. Boggs went to Congress at the same time in 1940. He served for many years with your Mother. He was very fond of them both. Both your parents came to parties at my Mother and Dad's house. Ms. Lindy knew me most of my life, When my Daddy died your Mother was the first person to call me that night. She said that she would take care of the people who would be flying in from D.C. for the funeral. She was at the Church when my famly arrived and she made the day so much easier for me. I will always remember her kindness, that is who she was. I lived near her in the Quarter from 1982 to 1992. I visited her and saw her often at Mass at the Catheral. I just want to share these memories with you all. I know your sister, she and I were closer in age. Ms. Lindy was a lovely person. She really was a good friend to me. She is the last of that decade. That generaton of people were very special in our country's history. With sympathy, Dawn Hebert
Thanks for everything you did for us in Louisiana!
You were a precious gem!
With our deepest sympathy!
St. John the Baptist Parish!
May god bless the family in their time sorrow .
To the Boggs family- May I give my heartfelt condolences to the family of a very sweet woman, who in 1973 wrote a recommendation letter for me, an african-american, to help me enter Loyola University in New Orleans. Thank you! May God continue to Bless your family.
Mrs. Lindy was a remarkable woman who served her family, church and country with the utmost style and grace. Thank you for your service. Prayers for Mrs. Lindy and her family.
One of the best and honest louisiana politicians. We will miss her.

Great loss of a classy Louisiana heroine
To the family of the late Lindy Boggs: Weeping endures during the night but joy comes in the morning. Cokie, your mother accomplished much during her life time and with that being said, I know you will miss here sorely.
Mrs. Boggs was truly a special of a kind a lady. When I was in my early twenties facing being a single mother with no income from my ex husband, Mrs. Boggs put on her cape and by the next month I was receiving my allotments from the government. She had also assisted my mother many years before with such success. She was always willing to assist the underdog and stick with you until your problem was resolved. All the ladies who are in a political office should only learn a fraction of her grace, kindness, humbleness and humanity toward others and the world would be a better place. GOD BLESS
To the family of our dear Sorority Sister, we wish you peace and comfort in the loss of this great woman. She was a beacon of light for all the world to see. May she rest in the arms of our Savior.
Lindy Boggs was a great congresswoman. Many of my friends remembered how efficient she was in responding to inquiries and concerns they sent to her. I myself recall being sworn in as a U. S. citizen in January 1976 and then being given information on how to apply for a U. S. passport (which I did) but no information on voter registration. When I wrote her about this, she almost immediately sided with me, contacted the U. S. Justice Department to check into that, and then replied to me with the information that the League of Women Voters normally provides that information to new citizens. I still remember her courtesy and expeditiousness in replying to me. May she now rest in peace.
There was no finer person, statesman, and face of our nation that Lindy Boggs. And a more gracious lady has never been born. Our nation's loss is too profound to put into words.
RIP, Ms. Boggs, a life well lived, your light is shinning in Heaven.
May God help you remember all the wonderful things your mamma did for Louisiana and women. My rosary will be said for her for nine straight days. Time with God' s help will be your friend. Louise Anna Angelle McCann
What a great,nice caring women. Our prayers are with your family
Dear Cokie...Your Mother will always be in our hearts. We spent many wonderful times with her at the Longs and every conversation was spirited and spiritual. How honored we were to have known her...what a special lady! And what a proud Mother!
Jacque & Ed Caplan
Thank you for your great contribution for New Orleans community God Bless Rest in peace.
Lindy Boggs was a very special lady and a true friend. Always a Southern Lady, she could achieve her political goals with a charm and grace that is too often missing today. For me she was a powerful ally -- as much as anyone she was responsible for the New Democrat movement getting off the ground. When Lindy wanted something she got it -- and we all were the better for it. I'm glad she was usually on my side.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
My prayers go out to Miss Lindy's family. She was a remarkable lady, a trailblazer for women, so full of life and energy. You served Louisiana proudly. God bless.
Lindy Boggs photo should be found under several words in any dictionary: grace, kindness, courage, dedication. She was a mentor and a friend of mine since my teens. I loved her as a friend and admired her as a legislator. The world is a little dimmer now without her presence in it but her many years of service to both Louisiana and the nation will long serve as a reminder of a life well lived. God bless the memory of Lindy Boggs and may He comfort all who mourn her passing.
Thanks for your life of service. Thanks for honoring the service of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc by becoming an honorary member. So proud to call you, Soror

A place of honor in our home is the beautiful gobbler Lindy send us as a wedding gift 35 years ago.

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Fr. Harold Boggs, SJ, at Spring Hill College in the late 1960's as a Jesuit scholastic. Both the Claiborne and the Boggs families have given great service to both their state and nation! I have followed her career and the careers of her children over the years via the media. God bless her and her family! Requiescat in pace!

Dear Boggs Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy upon the death of your mother/grandmother/great-grandmother.
She was truly a "Steel Magnolia" and such a wonderful mentor to the country and world on how to live not only as an American but a daughter of God as well.
I love her book, and have re-read it many times. She was and is an inspiration to me on what is important in life and how to serve those less fortunate than myself.
I wish to express my condolences to the family. In your time of bereavement, please know that God assures us that we will see our loved ones again. I'm sure that with the help of our loving Heavenly Father, your family, and friends, you will receive the comfort and support you need to cope with your grief.

what a beautiful person she was. I always looked upon Lindy as a friend. In the many campaigns which I worked for Hale, she was always the guiding light.

God Bless You Sweet Soul.
My heart felt sympathy, a well lived life!

Today I looked up "LADY" in the dictionary and there was a picture of Lindy Boggs. Our condolences to the Boggs family.
This gracious lady came out to the hangar in Anchorage and talked with me before I went out flying in the mountains looking for her husband and Nick Bengich in 1972. I willingly spent Thanksgiving and Christmas flying the mountains in search of her and her family's loss. May God continue to bless this family.

So sorry for your loss, Ms Cokie, your mom will always remain a mentor to those of us who came of age in the '60's and 70's. By her example so many women become all they are meant to be. How blessed you are to have called her Mother! And now your parents are reunited...Heaven embraces her for sure! Much love and comfort to you!
I offer my deepest sympathy to the Boggs Family. In the early eighties I contacted Mrs. Boggs office for help, she called me personally and my problem was resolved within a matter of weeks. The last time I saw her was at the Louis Armstrong Airport in 2006, with her and her daughter being transported on a cart. I did not apporoach them due to security issues, but she looked beautiful and she still had that always present smile. Mrs. Boggs has come to assistance at least twice and there will never be another Lindy Boggs. GOD BLESS
Dear Boggs Family hello this is FaithTobin and I heard about the loss.my condolences's to the Family.she'll surely be missed.this goes to especially to Cokie Roberts.luv,Faith
My deepest sympathies to the Boggs family. My sister Celeste, who is with the Convent of St. Joseph, was based in New Orleans for many years and met her several times. Lindy was always so gracious to her and everyone she met. Lindy's commitment to the rights of all showed her compassion and leadership skills. May she rest in peace and she will be in our prayers.
Dear Cokie, Don't know if you remember me. I was your Sacred Heart "little sister" at Wellesley. I lost my mother back in 1990. It doesn't matter how old they are or what year it is. The loss is the same. They cannot be replaced. Please accept my condolences, and get back in touch if you wish. All my love and sympathy, Karen Avakian (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Cokie, my sincere condolences. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that your Mother lived a long and very accomplished life. I know that you will miss her terribly. Sending prayers of peace and comfort at this time. I feel I know you because I listen to your commentary on Monday mornings on NPR. Thank you for your insights into the political process.

My condolences to all the Boggs family. My special condolences to Tommy and Cokie. Lindy will always remain a great Matriarch of all of Pointe Coupee and our families. She did so much for so many of us. Gone but not forgotten.
The United States and the world have lost a magnificent woman who represented all that is good about America.
Ms Lindy was a very smart southern gal. We will miss her. Sympathies to family are extended from Houma. Trudy V Hebert
To Lindy's immediate family,
Lindy was my grandmother's third cousin (Leda de la Vergne St. Paul) and since our first meeting in 1976 (at her Bourbon Street home during the Spring Fiesta), she has held a special place in my heart. During my college experience, Lindy gave me the fantastic opportunity of being one of her Congressional summer interns. I was privileged to know her and will never forget her.

To Mrs Lindy's Family...Your Mother Was Such A Sweet Lovely Lady....Glad She Was A Southern Lady So Full Of Grace And She Made A Great Difference In My Life...God Have Another Angel With Him...
Your family has served the public with honesty and integrity...my thoughts and prayers are with you....
The Lord gave us a great lady whom HE has now called HOME. God Bless the Family
As the wife of the owner of Ruby Red's in the French Quarter years ago, I remember Ms. Boggs visiting us whenever she was in town. A very gracious and southern lady. She was a great contribution to La. politics.
A beautiful,gracious southern lady who fought hard for all of Louisiana especially the women and poor. She could get more done with her smooth southern manners than any man with his fists pounding. Sat at her table many times listening to her dreams for Louisianas citizens. RIP as you've joined the love of your life in heavenly reward.
May your soul rest in peace. I often talked to you outside of Jesuit church in New Orleans. You were always so nice.
God bless Lindy Boggs. Rest in Peace. You were a GIANT in Civil Rights and Women's Rights. Congratulations on a life well lived that made a REAL DIFFERENCE.
Amazing woman! Praying God will comfort her family.
What a great woman, mother, & Representative Mrs. Boggs was. Mrs. Boggs fought for those who could not fight. How proud we should be that she graced the state of La. and our United States, thank you.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
To the Boggs Family, Our condolences to each of you in your loss. Our thanks for her service to the great state of Louisiana. May the moments you shared give you comfort. God Bless, Vince and Rhenda Giaccone
After reading Washington through a Purple Veil, I discovered that we are distantly related as we are both descendants of William Brewster. Now whenever I hear Cokie Roberts, I think "There is Cousin Cokie." I am glad that your mother lead a long and wonderful life. I pray that the Lord will comfort you with His Peace, surround you with His Love and encourage you with His presence.
What a gift to Louisiana and to the causes of women and the poor! Lindy Boggs was a treasure for us all. May she look down on us from heaven!
IN CONGRESS LINDY BOGGS DID A T LOT FOR THE STATE OF LOUISIANA NOT ONLY FOR BLACKS BUT PORR WHITES ALSO AND FOR THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS,LA WHERE I LIVE. RIP MRS BOGGS.------------------JWWLA
My condolences to her family.
I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Lindy several times at Brennan's, took me by the hand and introduced me to the guests in her dining party. A gracious, kind and lovely person. The world has lost her light.
I remember your mamma as a sweet, smart, and loving person. She was such a great Ambassador for Louisiana. May GOD wrap his arms in comfort around her family. You were so lucky to have had her all these years.. I know she is in Heaven helping GOD.
'Lady' Boggs would have been a better name!
Rest in Peace, Darling!
You will always live in our hearts and prayers.
