  3. So very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I still have very fond memories of our days together on Irving Avenue.

    What I remember most about your mother was she had a very good mother who loved everyone. She had a very kind and loving heart, a trait which she has passed along to all of her children.

    May she rest in peace with Mr. McCoy and Wayne as well as all her other family.

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time.

    Take care.

    My deepest condolence to all the McCoy family. I knew both your Mom and Dad for many years as we double dated. I was dating George McCoy when Gerry started dating Doris. WE lost contact when your family moved out west. I had planned to contact Doris after I read about Wayne. I was so shocked to hear about her death. My sincerest thoughts are with you at this time.
