Lakeview (Orleans Parish)
Dear friend and muse for whom I shall mourn the rest of my days. Aquaintances at first, but in the two years I knew him in this Life, he grew to be the greatest and most unassuming teacher of my young adulthood. He fell ill and quickly his friends disappeared. My occasional visits to the hospital became daily and soon I was one of his three principal care-givers along with his loving and devoted parents, Victor Andre LeBlanc, Sr. and Alice Marie Marx-LeBlanc. In him I remembered a promise made centuries ago. After 18 months of squirming to leave this Life to resume another, he left --- and our lives changed.
Surviving him at the time were his parents and seven siblings: Andre Victor, Denis Charles, Marc Joseph, Jean-Paul, Michelle Marie, Ann-Marie (Dupuis) and Christian Jules LeBlanc. Other survivors include Uncles Preston (since deceased) and Frank Marx; Aunt Betty Antonini, cousins Donald, Ronald, Janel and Preston (Jr.) Marx, and many other family members. Preceded in death are his maternal grandparents, Frank Joseph Marx Sr. and Williamina Celeste Girault-Marx. His remains now eternally repose with those of his mother, since deceased, and paternal ancestors Eulalie, William, Frosalie, and Victor Andre LeBlanc.
Every time I see the ruins of Vicksburg Street or of the Columb Plantation, or see a flash of him in the smile of his notable brother, the phantoms of those happy and haunted late years in Lakeview suddenly take flight returning me to a younger man's days of sport and mirth and laughter and sighing.
