D.L. Menard passed away this week. He was a true Cajun original
This one won't link, but still cool https://video-dft4-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t42.1790-2/20494373_1932012823722296_8485655835479900160_n.mp4?efg=eyJ2ZW5jb2RlX3RhZyI6InN2ZV9zZCJ9&oh=9b880762849111ad637eade73d9dfb1f&oe=597D2B1E
Ron, I was actually looking up something about him and listening to him a few days ago and was shocked to hear that. RIP Mr. Menard. "The Back Door" is kinda the theme song for most Drakiens.
I was reading something about his funeral the other day. He had specifically requested that "The Back Door" not be played at his funeral, because he planned to enter heaven through the pearly gates, not sneakin' I the back.
I was listening to his funeral service on youtube in the background while doing some other work after reading your post and heard that. I thought that was pretty funny. But that's how D.L. was. A character till the end. I can only hope I that the same can be said for me one day.
