The sisters want to say a special thank you to our brother, Scott, for his constant love, loyalty and special care shown to our mom.

The family extends a special thanks to Unity Hospice and all those at the McCormick Memorial Home- her 12 years there brought her peace of mind and gave her a real purpose in life. This was really her 'home.'
