The family will receive friends at Southside Church of Christ Sunday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00 P. M. In light of the recent health concerns, the family does not wish for anyone's health to be compromised and understand for those not attending services and visitation. They ask that anyone feeling ill stay home, and they will be grateful for your thoughts and prayers if you cannot or do not wish to attend. Register online at www.texarkanafuneralhome.com.
