  1. I am very sorry to learn of my cousin Dina’s passing. Guy and I enjoyed more than one visit with Dina and Alphée and the stories and chuckles we shared together. I extend my sympathies to all who survive Dina, and include the sympathies of my brothers and sisters, the Breau family (sons and daughters of Amedée Breau).
