I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a sweet person and I spent a lot of time at their home with his daughter Alma when we were growing up. Vernon my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Over the few years I have worked at Ozark Health I got to know this man very well. His words “oh I’m alright” no matter the situation made my day as well as his contagious smile! Mr. Loy was such a sweet man and I will miss him dearly! Many prayers for peace and comfort during this time. Love, Gerian Andrews RN Ozark Health Nursing and Rehab
