Offbeat: Joyful Singers

JONESBORO--Lee Roy Lambie and his wife Cecile bring joy to dozens every single week.  For the last 2 1/2 years the Lambies make it their weekly assignment to lead a gospel sing along at local nursing homes.

Their weekly visits started in 2004 when one of their friends moved to St. Bernards Village.  They came to see her and decided to host a sing along for all the residents.  Cecile plays the piano and Lee Roy leads the group in good ole gospel tunes and since the first song sing, they say they've been hooked.  Since that day they have not missed a weekly visit to either St. Bernards Village or St. Elizabeth's Assisted Living.

Cecile says it's a blessing, not just for the residents, but for them too.  In fact, both say they feel like they get more out it than the residents.  Lee Roy says they are all great people with wonderful stories to share, they just need someone to share them with.
