Denice and I were saddened to hear of the death of Hot Springs City Manager David Watkins. On behalf of Denice, myself and the residents of Garland County, I want to extend our sympathy and prayers of comfort to Kay and the entire Watkins family. The death of someone who has been important in your life always creates a painful absence and void. We are so sorry for your loss. Words are never adequate in moments like these, but we want the City of Hot Springs and the Watkins family to know that we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers as they move through this time of mourning and bereavement.
