Earl would like to express he’s feeling about Christy Kay Dart Woods:
She had a good life and has so many family & friends supporting her. She was my companion, best friend, she was my backbone, soul mate, and the love of my life. She was an amazing wife and mother. We have been through a lot of rough times during our 21 years together, 19 years of marriage on the 20th of Dec 2021. We also had a lot of great times like two trips to Hawaii and every place we went and did together. When she was paralyzed in 2005, I promised her that I would never leave her side; that I will support, care for, and cherish her. She was a big inspiration to so many people for overcoming her paralysis, doing things that most people would never think of her doing. Like driving herself to Altus and back from Tipton. So many people stopped and watched as she got into the van and drove away. When she set up the class reunion to meet all her classmates, she was so joyful and could not wait for it to happen. She enjoyed each one of you. To all her family I would like to thank you for accepting me as a family member. I, Earl, would like to thank everyone that has reached out to me and made me feel welcome into your heart and friendship during this time. God bless and you all are in my prayers as you put us in yours. Christy would want each and every one to be happy at this time. So, the next time you have a class reunion celebrate her life in happiness and joy. Have a drink and toast to CHRISTY KAY DART WOODS. GOD Bless Christy Kay Dart Woods my you Rest In Peace.
