I remember all the times and the bad times we had growing up in Warnock. And the times you were our boss at he mine. They all said it was the McCormick’s crew.
But the worst time is knowing someone is gone and you never see or hear them again, but now you are with Mom,Dad,Thomas,Clyde ,Robert,and James. And hope some day we will all be together for ever more RIP BROTHER
Was the best dad

I love you and miss you so much
Was so surprised when there was a cat on his Facebook page. He never liked cats before!
When someone who is dearly loved passes, it is especially difficult for family members. Sorry for your loss. May you all through prayer to our God and Father, experience how “the the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus,” brings you comfort. (Philippians 4:6, 7).
It still does not seem real.
