    I can't imagine what you are feeling, but I want to express my condolences to you. It has been a great pleasure taking care of Mr. Bahouth at Coastal Family Medicine. He was a great man and I will miss him very much. Please let me know of any way I can help you. "I am Free" Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I’m following the path God has laid you see. I took His hand when I heard him call I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee God wanted me now; He set me free. Sincerly, Andreaus Wooten, CMA Coastal Family Medicine

    Edwin and family--I have fond memories of Mr. Bahouth--We did a small building project several years ago on the storage shed behind his house--i kinda got used to the Turkish coffee in the tiny cups. Most of all , I engoyed our small talk and the special roasted peanuts he always had in his jacket pocket--He fed then to me by the handful-I know he will be missed by all of you--your friend, Kendall Hardee
