In memory of his grandmother on her passing in 2006, Brandon, Co-editor of the website, writes: Annie Mae Abshire was born, raised, married and lived in Kaplan, LA, for all 88 years of her life. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be missed by all. With her passes a part of our Cajun heritage – memories, language, food and experiences – unique to Southwest Louisiana. We love you Mawmaw. I’ll miss your oatmeal, gumbo, pralines and figs, but most of all, your laugh and your smile.
