Dear McCormicks,

I'm so sorry for your loss. He was such a nice guy, so proud of his kids (he had a lot to be proud of) and loved watching them play hoops. I'm sending thoughts and prayers during this tough time. God bless you.

I am so saddened to read this. Mr McCormick was a wonderful man. I served him and his wife for years. And recently he would come in to pick up dinner to have with his wife at the Nursing Home. He was always so kind and truly loved his family whom he would always talk with me about.
My prayers to the family and may you rest peacefully Mr McCormick. You will be missed.
