    My mother's parents, Joseph Wilbur Bourgeois and Mazie Carco, lived and ran their seafood market directly across the street from MR. William Faulkner's summer home that was on the corner of Beach Blvd and Market St in Waveland, MS. My grandfather was a good friend of Mr. Faulkner and there were many news articles with pictures of the both of them together throughout the years. I am age, 48, born in 1964, the second youngest of six children. Along with my older siblings and older cousins and even the littlier ones, we built an "infamous" bonfire every year with Mr. Faulkner's GRANDCHILDREN. There was an award given for the largest bonfire on the Fourth of July every year, and with forces joined of the Faulkner grandchildren and the Bourgeois grandchildren won that prize as a result of a group effort MANY TIMES. Those were some good times. Another tidbit of information, the house directly across the street from Mr. Faulkner's front yard was the summer home of Dr.& Mrs. Lanasa (sp?) who was a very well renowned physician who lived and practiced medicine in the city of Lafayette, LA, which just so happens to be the city that my mother moved to in 1973, raised her six children, and remains here today. I'm still here as well, and Dr. lanasa's grandchildren are still in Lafayette today, at least some of them that I know of.
