My sincerest condolences to the family of William. Mr. Landrum was a patient at our office, Meridian Dental Center, and I have known him for 15+ years and never saw him without a smile on his face and cheer in his voice. He will be missed by every staff member and missed dearly by Dr. Bailey.

to comfort you at this time of sadness i want to share words of comfort from the words of God Isaiah 26:19 " your love ones will live. A corpse of mine-- they will rise up. awake and cryout joyfully, you residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of mallows, and the earth itself will let even those impotent in death drop in birth.. i have this hope of the resurrection in Gods kingdom
