SCOTT COUNTY, AR —  The story of a Dallas man — who’s wife died in the Scott County flooding last week — inspired some local folks to help him out.

Jodie Byers’ wife Cathy got stuck between their car and a tree and drowned last Thursday.

Jodie says he can’t afford to bring his wife’s body home or give her a proper burial.

But, two local men — working in the funeral business —  volunteered to bring her body back to Dallas.

The men didn’t want to be recognized and said they want to offer their help without being identified to the public.

Jodie says he’s overwhelmed with the community’s support.
