Hollie and Chad LeJeune

It was like grieving for a death. You guys had worked so hard and had built this wonderful business, and then in six weeks time – it was gone.

Chad LeJeune talks with his mother, Hollie LeJeune, about the BP oil disaster's effects on their lives and their seafood business in coastal Alabama.

Recorded in Mobile, AL on October 17, 2010.
