I have worked in nursing homes for 46 years. There have never been residents that I would do more for or treat differently but there are those certain ones that I will never forget. Waymon Massey is one of those. He was a force to be reckoned with. We spent many hours having long conversations and I learned much from him. I will also remember the love he had for his family and the love they had for him. I am honored to say that I was able to share a part of his life. He often called me "Linda" by mistake and finally would ask me "is Linda or Frances working today?" The last thing he said to me was "Is it Linda or Frances". Family, please know he was very much at peace with his last days. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss.

Mr Massey was a beautiful man. Caring dedicated and loving. It was an honor to speak with him on almost every Wednesday morning right about the time the tower opened. Yes, he called mainly to talk with Sonny but it was a joy to learn more about him, his life and what problems he was facing. I felt his loneliness and desire for a loved ones closeness. Sonny and his family took very good care of him in his last days. He's not my father but became a very good friend and I will miss our Wednesday morning chats. I think the thing I will hold dearest from my friend is he let his feelings shine and the one I will always remember most is "I love ya son" as he was we were hanging up telling Sonny how he cared for him. Reat in peace my friend.

Mr. Massey was my patient for nearly 5 years. He would always ask me about my nephew and my son. He will be missed greatly. I enjoyed the time I got to care for him.

Before I was even a ‘twinkle in my parents eyes,’ Waymon was very cherished in their home. As he grew up he never forgot his Aunt Mary Gray and Uncle Tal. His visits were always an exciting event … especially when he married Iris and would then come to share each new child’s birth. Many hours were spent on their front porch while Waymon rocked in those famous green chairs. When he was on leave from the Air Force in Greenville (and if I was in elementary school), he would come stand under a tree outside the playground fence and wait for my class to come out for recess. I never knew when he was coming to Greenville, but that tree was always a place I looked before starting any games with my friends …. and many times I was surprised to see him waiting patiently. I would run up to the fence and we would hold ‘fingers’ thru the webbing (the fence was too tall for hugs). He would tell stories and I would hang on every word. I stayed there for the entire time my school class had outside. These were very special times and memories for me. There were more as I grew up and became an adult, but none as dear as those. He was the only connection I had thru the years to my Mother’s beloved late sister, Agnes. He never failed to hold a special place in my heart and life ….. and he always will. ?
