My deepest sympathy to the family of my friends, Dr. Calvin and Melinda Bracy. We have been friends since school in Little Rock. He also delivered most of my grandchildren. He was always supportive and his good humored demeanor was always a comfort. He will be missed. Now with the passing of Melinda as well I am praying for our Lord Jesus to embrace your family at this difficult time. All our love and prayers are with you all.

Dr. Bracy delivered our third son, Stuart, just after we moved to Pine Bluff in 1982. He was the soul of kindness, graciousness, and patience. We always thought this third baby was going to be a another boy (no ultrasound back then) and we only had boy's names picked out. Dr. Bracy said if it was a girl he was going to name her Myrtle. Stuart was 10 days late, I was scared to death of being induced, and then we had to call to call Dr. Bracy to the hospital in the middle of the night . I felt so awful, but he was so kind though it all. When Stuart was born, he said, "It's Stuart Myrtle!" and gave us all a laugh. I am thankful to have known him and Melinda and pray comfort and peace for you and Bryan and your grandchildren. Ann Pierce
