    Wayne, sorry to hear of your mom’s homegoing. It is hard to let them go but know that we will see them again soon. You are in my prayer.

    Wayne and Carolyn: my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Mrs. Arrant was well loved by all who knew her. Dr. Prevatt and all his staff loved her. I visited with her many times and she was like family. Her baking was well known and we loved seeing her walk in with bags of goodies. Thanks to both of you for the wonderful care you gave her. She was a special lady and will be missed. Love to you both. Dora
