Guy newsThis past week has been a tough week and a long week. As most of you might know, I have been helping a dear friend of mine Albert Woods. We graduated together and have always been friends. Albert Elijah Woods went to be with the lord as one of his angels last Tuesday. He had some wonderful ladies that took care of him too. He left behind his wife Susan and son Bo Woods. He will be missed by the Guy Perkins Class of 1970. And other family members. Albert had a great memorial service. Cassie Coates and her son each spoke at the funeral telling how much Albert meant to them. I guess I should of spoke but I couldn’t do it. Dusty Burt, you did a wonderful job conducting the service on Saturday at 3 p.m. Albert would have so proud of you.

David McPherson has been improving, which is good news. He still has a long way to go. Please keep those prayers coming for him and his family.

I spent some time last week with my friend Dorothy Myers at her mom’s place in Wilmott, Arkansas. She had a sale to downsize. She still has her mom Merle Jean Myers, who is in assisted living facility. It was a lot of work and what memories she had of all her mom’s things. Her mom is a great person.

Aimee Glover at the time of this writing is in the hospital in Conway. Prayers for Aimee to get the rest and to find out what is causing all this confusion and pain. Pray that Jeanie gets some rest too.

Happy birthday Zachary Hartwick, Curtis Lee Barton And Johnny (Pooh) Clay. Hoping each of you had great birthdays. I went to a cookout in honor of Johnny Clay’s birthday at his home. Good food and good company.

Please pray that this Covid disease will get a cure soon; so many have gotten this and still feeling the side effects and death. Numbers are still rising.

My mother’s brother Carnzzle Lane from Corbin, Kentucky, is in third stage dementia and fell Friday night, refused to go to hospital, then went the next day. He has four broken ribs. They kept him in hospital to try and keep him from having pneumonia. Would appreciate prayers on his behalf.

Hope your Labor Day weekend was a great one. Have a great week and watch out for those big yellow buses – stop when those stop signs are out and yellow lights flashing. It’s the law. Send news to me at 501-450-0395 or send it through Facebook.
