  1. Gaylon Brooks, Trumann, At. says

    COVID quarantine is preventing me from attending services, but want to express my deepest regards to the family. Friends for 50 plus years, leaves a void in my life for a friend that I spent many hours with while in the guards in the 60’s then later on when Gene retired and moved back to Trumann from Saint Louis. You will be missed my friend.
