  2. My deepest sympathy to all the LeBlanc family and Maudie. I will always have fond memories of Virgil from a young girl. Virgil and Maudie use to cut a rug at all the French Music dances. Great dancers they were. There was never a time the door of Virgil and Maudie wasn't open for me. I was always greeted with laughter, smiles, big hugs and kisses. I was always invited to great meals in their home rather it was on a daily bases or a Holiday. I love to sit out on their swings in their backyard just to talk, laugh or whatever took place. There was never a dull moment with Maudie's sense of humor. Virgil will be missed very much by me. Virgil I know Heavens doors are awaiting for you. When you get their please tell my dad, mom and Wilton I love and miss them very much. Y'all all can join each other in the name of Jesus. Amen
