It was so wonderful getting to meet and know Mr. Womble and his wife recently at Baptist. It was quite a blessing. I definitely will always remember their kind words, advice on my kids schooling, and all the snacks they provided lol. His wife and family will be in my prayers.

I feel so fortunate to have reconnected with Joe while working at CARTI. Being a CVICU nurse at ACH from the early 90s, we were able to share old memories. He was a fine human being. This world needs more Nolan Wombles! I am so sorry for your loss.

We send our deepest condolences to the wife and family of Mr. Wamble. Although we only knew him for a short period of time, he became like family and was a very sweet and loving man. He was a pleasure to take care of and will surely be missed. We know he is no longer suffering and is in a much better place. We will keep you all in our prayers.
