Picayune Lost a Good One Today

by Carey Meitzler

I just got in from a work-related trip to Houston and found out that Mr. Huey Stockstill, Sr. passed

away.  I never knew Mr. Huey personally (my interaction with him was an occasional " hello");

however, it was the children that he raised and what he did for our community that always stood

out to me.  

I just wanted to write this quick note to thank him and his family for their support of our community.  

They provide a lot of good jobs to a lot of good people.  Also, the generosity he has always shown

to our school system was second to none.  I pray that God will bless his family during this time. 

I am saddened by their loss.
