PARAGOULD, AR - One wedding wasn't enough for Tammy DeBoard and Billy Davis of Paragould, especially since Tammy's mother wasn't at the informal ceremony.  So the couple decided to do it again, at the home of Tammy's mother Lois.

But two days before the ceremony, Lois DeBoard was hospitalized for congestive heart failure.  Rather than change the wedding date, the couple switched locations for the ceremony to the critical-care unit of the Arkansas Methodist Medical Center in Paragould.

In a ceremony in front of family and friends, the couple wed Friday in Lois DeBoard's hospital room.  Tammy's mother, Lois, said the ceremony was just beautiful.
