Wesley Dixon home from hospital


Doyle Dean Johnson of Jeremiah died on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the WARH. He had been in the nursing home and was not doing well at all.

Doyle was my husband Lee Roy’s half-brother. I’m sure going to miss him sitting on the porch and waving at me every time I went by. He is going to be missed.

Lorene Halcomb of Carcassonne is not doing well. She is living in Alabama now and her daughter Brenda said they were just keeping her comfortable.
