Dear Ken
I am sorry to hear of May's passing. May had a great character and was always laughing about something. I remember with fondness when you and May would come to our home to visit or for the quartet practices with my dad. They are great memories.
With love and prayer
Safe in the arms of Jesus.

Dear Ken
I am saddened to hear of May's passing. I remember when you and Tom sang with the Crystal River Quartet back in Ireland. That was over sixty years ago. May and I would sit and chat and laugh. The tea pot was always on and the pastries came out. They were great times of laughter and fellowship.
With love
Sheltered in the arms of God.

Dear Ken and family. We were so sorry to hear about May.Our thoughts and prayers are with you,at this time. I have good memories of May over the years. She was always laughing,and had a way of making prople feel loved. I remember as a child going to your house in Cloughfern ,with my dad for quartet practices,May always had a treat for me. Once when your dog got lost,when we lived in Rathcoole my dad and I joined the search. We never found him, but May never gave up. All the times May made us feel welcome at the house. She was a special lady,one I will never forget. My dad said to me when he was ill, DONT worry about me, I will be well taken care of in Heaven. So will May. Psalm 16 verse 11, Psalm 63 verse 3. Our love is with you. Bell Savage Reid.

Dear Ken and Karen and family,
We are so very sorry for your loss of such a special woman whose strength shone through till her last breath. We enjoyed having the pleasure to get to know her, both from visiting her over the past 12 years that our children brought our families together and learning about her character through you and Stephanie. We enjoy seeing glimpses of her in her great grand daughter, Hailey May. She was the pillar of strength for your family and has now passed it onto you. May she rest in peace and live on within all of you and in her gardens in heaven. We are blessed to have known her. With much love from the Porath family.

My memories of May McCormick were her faithful telephone calls to my Mum. They would laugh and cry together. Praying for you all as you prepare to honour a special woman who loved God.

Dear Uncle Ken and family,
So sorry to hear the news today. Aunt May was very special to me and I will always remember our visits with all of you when I was growing up in Montreal. She was the first person to give me a perm and I remember being so excited to have curly hair. It was also so nice to see her everyday at highschool when she worked in the cafeteria. She was always full of fun and laughter and I remember her with great fondness. Now she will be laughing and having a great time together with my dad in heaven. My thoughts and prayers for all of you at this time.
