AMR makes a handful of special Christmas deliveries

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - For almost 40 years, drivers with American Medical Response have been making very special Christmas deliveries. Today, the tradition lived on with a program called Home for the Holidays.

Eight residents of coast nursing homes were brought back to their families homes to enjoy the Christmas holiday. One of those was Lois Mays, who came home to be with her daughter Hattie and son-in-law Calvin. Lois said this was one of the best Christmas presents she has ever received. Other family members arrived later in the afternoon to enjoy the holiday. Lois spent about seven hours back home before being brought back to the nursing center.

Doug Walker was there for the special reunion and will have more on this touching story tonight on WLOX News and on
