Sammy Nunez-Losing a longtime Friend!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

My friend for more than 40 years, Sammy Nunez died this week.  He was a giant in Louisiana politics for all those years, and served as president of the Louisiana Senate for some 15 years.  I can’t recall an election of mine where Sammy was not there in full support.  He was with me in good times and bad, and I have always appreciated his friendship.  Sammy and I have stayed in touch long after political life.  I heard he was hospitalized and I made a trip this past weekend to Oshner Hospital in New Orleans.  Sammy was sleeping and full of a number of tubes.  I stayed for an hour to visit and remember in my mind the many campaigns we went through.  I left him a long note, but he never regained consciousness.  Sammy”˜s funeral service will take place this week at St. Louisiana Cathedral in New Orleans with the Archbishop presiding.  I will be there to pay my final respects to a true friend.  See story of his life by Clicking Here and in the video below.
