Hello Michelle,

Thanks for your response. I would be happy to share what little I know about that family if you'd like. I knew Lillie well as I grew up in Grand Isle just one street over from her house. You mentioned Louis. Are you referring to "Cola"? Thats how I knew him but, I think his proper name was Louis as well.
Anyway, thanks again.

Aloha Michele! My name is Linda Ann Demola Cruz. My Father is your mom's (Ione right?)1st cousin. From what I understand they were pretty close. My dad is Russell Clement Demola (DeMolle). Your Grandmother Louise Algero was my Grandfather's sister (Clement Demola), she was also my god-mother. My dad left Louisiana, joined the military, and married my mom, Suzuko Higa (from Okinawa, JPN) we lived on the island of Guam in the Pacific for most of my life. I married Raymond Cruz (from Guam) and we moved to Honolulu, HI where we've made our home for the last 14yrs. I keep in touch with my dad's sister Karin (Aunt Kay)who just told me today that your mom called her recently. I've been doing some research trying to connect the dots. We've lived almost all of our lives in the islands so it's pretty hard. My dad currently lives on the island of Saipan. Hope to hear from you soon. My email address is: Blessings, Linda
