Last night Gina and I attended the Witness Quartet concert that was held here in Mena. Witness Quartet has been singing together here in the Mena area for the last 15 years. Last year they released their first CD - Still Climbing. They are a very talented group. The first time that I heard them was when they sang at my friend Carney Williams wedding. I was his best man.
CARNEY WILLIAMS AND I ON HIS WEDDING DAY, MARCH 26,2005
Sometimes life seems to have interesting coincidences, and this was one of those instances. Friday, Carney was seriously ill, and had to be taken to the hospital. Saturday Gina and I were visiting him in the hospital just before we went to the concert. They are going to be doing some more tests today. We are praying that those tests go well.
Here are some video clips from last nights concert. If you enjoy good Southern Gospel quartet music you will like these.

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled An Arkie's Faith, using articles from the column.
