Ina and the Bostic family, so sorry of Dub's passing. I am from Thayer and now live at Conway. My brother Boyd told me about his passing. You all have my deepest sympathy and hope you find peace in God's care.

Dub was a valued part of our church family for the last several years at First Christian Church, Mammoth Spring Arkansas. His prayers were heartfelt, meaningful, and treasured by me and I'm sure all others. He will be greatly missed and we have a keen appreciation for both Dub and Ina's presence.
