Our thoughts and prayers are with Greg Pirkle and his family after the tragic death of his wife, Lisa yesterday. I got to know Greg during the First District special election this past spring.
Greg placed 4th in the crowded field of 13 and out-raised the other candidates to succeed Rep. Alan Nunnelee. Lisa taught math at Tupelo High for many years. She is survived by her husband, Greg, two children and her mother.
