New Website Format
When Don passed away, I was attempting to make the announcement on our web site. For some reason, I could not get the software I normally used to work and make the changes.
After several attempts, I called the company we use to host our website. I was told that they changed the web builder software. The new software had no provisions to transfer old files to the new one. I had to completely redo our site.
I'm still learning how to do this thing so it may take a while. I promise to make our site one of the best Cajun family sites on the web with your help.
Contact me with ideas of what you would like to see on our site. I will look at all suggestions and see if it can be done.
