My fondest and lasting friendships of my 34 years employment include my visits with Albert Landry in his room and our talks on the walk-ways. Our talks were all about New Iberia (my home town) and the Bayou Teche country.
Sam Wilson and Theresa were one of the most dignified couples I’ve ever known. I recall our many visits in his room and the lively discussions about Music and Civil Rights. After informing him the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the guest speaker at my graduation at Talladega College (Talladega, AL), the conversations were endless. They were very knowledgeable about both subjects – we shared happy moments.
William Farrington, whom everyone referred to as, “Mr. Farrington” (including Dr. Margaret Brand), was a dignified gentleman, always riding his bicycle dressed in colorful slacks, shirt and tie and hat.
Zell Brown and her eagerness to share her expertise on the “loom” and the specially designed hand-cranked-wheel-chair with everyone she met was most enthusiastic. No one was a stranger to her.
Joe McIntosh one of the most energetic tour guides as he shared life’s story as he provided guided tours at the Hospital.
Darryll Broussard and Louis Boudreaux were two of the most influential gentleman at Carville along with their charming wives Mary and Kitty (sisters).
