Arthur Carey Stallings, Sr. was a wonderful man and came from a wonderful family. Martha I know your heart is breaking but I know Arthur is rejoicing with his Lord and Savior. I have wonderful memories of visiting Arthur’s parent’s home – Street & Naomi as a child. It’s my understanding that Arthur was name after my grandfather – Arthur B. Carey. My mother was Thelma May Carey Allen. I live in NC and won’t be able to attend the service. Please know the family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
