“My favorite memory of Grand Isle was [when] I was a young girl, and we would go floundering in the bay. My dad was walking in the bay floundering, and there was a hole that we didn’t see and he fell in the hole. It was just some really great memories of fishing and crabbing, it’s been my great memories.”
“I think that they will recover with the people of Grand Isle. The residents are very resilient people who love where they’re from, so they will do whatever it takes to get their home back.”

“I think tourism is going to be a big part of that, just people still going there you know just showing support to the community, the rodeos that they have, just holidays. People tend to go there for the 4th of July, Memorial Day, so continuing to do the things that honestly they’ve always done best is how I think they will recover.”
