“I was saddened to learn of the passing of Governor Edwin Edwards this morning. I was fortunate to visit with him within the past month to discuss Acadian’s 50th anniversary, and we reminisced about how his administrations supported our company and our employee-owners over the years. One of the lasting memories I will have of Governor Edwards is how adamant he was that the rural areas of Louisiana receive the same high level of emergency care we provided in the more populated areas.
During our visit, his memory was as sharp as his legendary wit. He made a profound impact on Louisiana during his unprecedented four terms as governor. He deeply loved Louisiana and her people. My condolences go out to his family and friends.”
