Memorial website in the memory of your loved one



I have an angel on my shoulder,

she whispers in my ear,
Her voice is soft and gentle
and no one else can hear
When I'm tired and lonely
It's comfort that she brings
When I'm filled with happiness
I hear her laughter ring
My Angel is very close to me
I even know her name
And though I cannot see her
I love her just the same
She now has no more suffering
and gone is all the pain
I believe with all my hear
we will someday meet again
An angel's job is taxing
it is as hard as can be
I hope she never gets too tired
of looking after me
Yes, my angel is with me
from morning until the night
I know as long as she is here
everything will be alright
So, when my days are over
I won't pass in fear
I know my angel is waiting
to lead me home up there.




Mindi Marie Comardelle Trosclair
Born in Houma, LA. 10/13/1983
Mindi died of a massive brain hemorrhage
due to an aneurysm. 8/9/2005
Something we did not know she had.
She grew up in Des Allemands, Louisiana.
Attended Lafourche parish public schools. 

Mindi loved life. She found peace and pleasure in just being able to do the simple things we all take for granted. She loved to dance and she was so energetic.

This was the last picture taken of Mindi (1 1/2 wks before she left us). She is holding her Baby, Timmy.

This rainbow appeared at Mindi's roadside memorial on Mother's Day of this year. I cannot explain the calming feeling I had gotten from being witness to such a brilliantly colored, beatiful rainbow.

The moment that you died,
My heart split in two.
One side filled with memories.
The other died with you.
I often lay awake at night,
When the world is fast asleep.
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon my cheeks,
Remembering you is easy,
I do it every day.
But missing you is heartache,
that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart,
And there you will remain.
Life has gone on without you,
But never will be the same. 

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Mindi Comardelle-Trosclair who was born in Louisiana on October 13, 1983 and passed away on August 09, 2005 at the age of 21.
We will remember her forever.


And the Lord said, "Go!"
and I said, "Who me?"
and God said, "Yes, you!"
and I said, "But I'm not ready yet
and there is company coming,
and I can't leave my kids;
You know there's no one to take my place."
And God said, "You're stalling."

Again the Lord said, "Go!"
and I said, "But i don't want to."
and God said "I didn't ask you if you wanted to."
And I said, "Listen, I'm not the kind of
person to get involved in controversy.
Besides, my family won't like it,
and what will the neighbours think!"
And God said, "Baloney!"

And yet a third time the Lord said, "Go!"
and I said, "Do I have to?"
and God said "Do you love me?"
and I said "Look, I'm scared...
People are going to hate me...
and cut me up into little pieces...
I can't take it all by myself."
And God said "Where do you think I'll be?"

And the Lord said "Go!"

and I sighed,
"Here I am, send me!" 

Thank you Michele Demeo
mom of Angel Joseph Demeo


Family consists of:
 Leslie Sr., Leslie Jr., Ernest, Jason, Linda, Stephanie, Lisa, Shelly

Mother of Lauren, (4); Abel,Jr. (3)
and Timothy,(2 1/2 months) 

Mindi was always wanting to help people, especially children. She wasn't rich in money, but had one of the richest hearts I have ever met. She was everyone's friend. She would help anyone. That's what she enjoyed doing. 

She was the most forgiving person I ever knew. Never held a grudge. A generous heart. 


She always had a positive outlook on life. No matter how bad things got, she would always find the bright side of things. She had a quality that is very hard to find. I have never, in my 21 years of memories with her, ever heard her ever say, “Why Me?” She always said, “It’s gonna be alright.” 

Mindi was driving one day from Des Allemands to Bayou Gauche to take care of some business with her vehicle. She had her 2 oldest children in the car with her. Lauren, 4 and Abel,Jr., 2. Her other child, Timothy (2 1/2 months) was at home with PawPaw and MawMaw. Lauren says she was talking to her Mom, while Mindi was driving (around 60mph according to a witness), when suddenly, Mindi asks Lauren to be quiet for just a minute. This is when Mindi had her attack. Mindi had a massive brain hemorage due to an erupted aneurysm. Mindi grabbed her had and in Lauren's words, "My Mommy went to sleep." Doctors said she died pretty much as soon as the attack happened. Somehow, unbellievably, through the grace of God, Mindi was able to stop the car in the middle of the road. Then the witness says that the car ever so slowly, crept off to the side of the road. It came to a stop once again against a fence post. The doctor finds it a miracle that she was even able to stop this car and prevent a possible 3 fatality car wreck. 

We like to think she became an Angel immediately and steered the car to safety after stopping it. She saved the lives of her two children. She is our Hero, Always. 




These are the words she wrote on her brother-in-law's memory-of site just before she left us:

Ricky / Mindi Trosclair (Sister-in-law)
He was a great father and brother in law he will be missed but will always be in everyones heart we miss you ricky 
This is his site:

Mommy, you filled our days with rainbow lights,
fairytales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away our tears,
Gingerbread to ease our fears.
You gave the gift of life to us three,
And then in love, we se you free.
I thank you for your tender care,
for deep warm hugs and being there.
I hope that when you think of us three,
A part of you, you'll always see. 

We miss you mommy
Lauren, Bubba and Timmy

GOD made a wonderful sister,
A sister who wil never grow old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He molded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks, fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful sister,
And He gave that dear sister to me. 

From your brothers and sisters
With all our love

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:
"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you." 

A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand. 

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman
must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman
is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows!

You don't stop laughing because you grow old;
you grow old because you stop laughing 

Mindi, I just want to say:

For all you have done, all you have said and for all those you have helped. We miss you soooo much it hurts. We love you Baby girl.


When Angels sense you need them,
And Angels always do
They come, unseen, from everywhere
To help and comfort you.

They hover close beside you
'Till all your cares are gone,
'Till they can see you're ready
Once again to carry on.

Then some of them may fly away
And take their gentle touch
To other hearts that need the love
Of Angels very much.

But one, at least, stays with you
As your constant friend and guide,
For Guardian Angels never leave,
They're always at your side.

Her Miracles didn't stop there. The day she passed, we received a telephone call from someone who she picked up walking along the side of the road with arms full of groceries. She must've given this girl her phone number and said call me if you ever need a ride. This woman was calling with her condolences. 

Mindi also had filled out on her license to be an organ donor. Just a few days after her death, Mindi was able to help 56 other people with her organs, tissue and bone marrow. Within one week of her life and death, she impacted 59 families. 

Mom, Dad and Mindi's 3 kids
Bubba, Lauren and Abel
This was Christmas 2005 - the first Christmas without Mindi

Can't you just feel the sadness in little Abel's (Bubba's) face?

Assure me that we'll meet again, Upon your Golden Shore, And once more she'll be my Sister, In Heaven, forever more. Mindi, I love you and miss you terribly - Your sister - always and forever...

Her legacy
It is so hard to let go of someone loved so much by everyone  

miss me-but let me go

when i come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me
i want to rites in a gloom-filled room
why cry for a soul set free?

miss me a little-but not too long
and not with your head bowed low
remember the love we once shared
miss me-but let me go

for this is a journey we all must take
and each must go alone
its all a part of the master's plan
a step on the road to home

when you are lonely and sick at heart
go to the friends we know
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
miss me-but let me go..........

Sisters Are Forever  

"Today I am a movie star ...
You were yesterday."
"Okay, today I will explore,
A jungle far away."
"And I live in Hollywood,
I give out autographs."
"Well, I live in Africa,
And have a pet giraffe."
"And now I am on Broadway,
And I am also on TV;
I make guest appearances,
You can appear with me."
"No, I can't. I'm sick in Africa,
And I'm very, very ill;
You must come to my bedside,
And bring a magic pill."
"You come and take good care of me,
And I'll live because of you;
I'm so glad you are my sister,
And do what sisters do."
Then, we two fall down in laughter,
My little sis and me;
Today's game is finally over,
And we end our fantasy. 

There was only two years difference,
Which is not much when you're small;
It's like you have a built-in friend,
And you love her most of all.
There were times, of course, we disagreed,
Sometimes we fought and fussed;
But woe upon the outside soul,
Who dared to pick on one of us.
Right or wrong, I would defend her,
To the death I'd take my stand;
I know she'd do the same for me,
Outsiders cannot understand.

Once when we were very young,
I planned to run away;
My sister begged me not to go ...
(I can smile at this today.)
But I'd made up my little mind,
And I made it up one hill;
My sister slowly trailed behind,
(I close my eyes and see her still.)
The tears were streaming down her cheeks,
"Please don't go," my sister cried;
But I stubbornly moved on,
After all ... I had my pride.
I took another step or two,
Then she said, "I'll go tell Mom;"
That was all it took, (I guess),
For then I turned around.

I see that little tearful face,
Now in my reverie;
Then I did not know, of course,
How much she meant to me.
Well, we each grew up and did our thing,
We went out on our own;
But always we have kept in touch,
By telepathy or telephone.
I never got my pet giraffe,
Nor did I travel very far;
My sister never got in movies,
Nor became a Broadway star.

Most childhood dreams just disappear,
And adults accept their fate;
But I'm glad my sis is still around,
And we can still relate.
A truth our mother told us,
And this, I well remember ...
"One day your dad and I'll be gone,
But ... sisters are forever!"

Missing You Still SO much  

I Still Miss You

It's been some time, since you've been gone
I thought by now, I would be strong
I think of you, and shed my tears
I wonder who, will still my fears.

Your memories remain, inside my heart
My soul it seems, to be torn apart
You told me secrets, I hold so dear
I only wish, you would be near.

I still miss and love you, can't you see
I wish to hold, and talk with thee
So many things, I could not say
And now you've gone, so far away.

You taught me to, in God believe
You said he would always, take care of me
So take my hand, and guide me there
And save a place, one day to share. 

If you need me

I'm over here, I'm over there
You can find me anywhere.
When you need me I'll be there.
No harm will come to you Mom
Cause now I'm faster than anyone.
I'm in the air, I'm on the ground
Believe me, Mom I'm still around.
My wings are big & I fly high,
And I see clearly from the sky.
I was your child in real life,
But now, I'm your guardian angel Mom
For the rest of your earthly life.

"If you need me call and I will come"
