Through the years Leodocia, a truly lovely and generous lady, has made numerous contributions to the class of 1954. This painting was to be presented to her in recognition and thanks for those contributions. It was to be a surprise, since she had agreed to host a get together, at her lovely home in Bunkie, for the class of 54 during the reunion. She is a paraplegic, and just prior to the reunion she was involved in an accident while manipulating her chair on the ramp of her vehicle. She fell off and broke her leg. She was unable to attend the event at her home. This painting was unveiled at that event so that the class members could see it. It was later presented to her at the nursing home where she remains confined. This information was provided by Rod Aymond.
