It was a pleasure and delight to care for such an amazing woman. She has influenced my life forever. She was like a second Mom to me. Always in my heart, dear one.

I have been dreading this day for what seems like forever. Not many people can say they knew three sets of their great grandparents. Not many people can tell you memories of each great grandparent. But I can. Today the world lost a fire cracker. Someone who was tough, strong, and brave. Someone who loved and cared for everyone. A hard worker. Compassionate. Brilliant. Someone who was a friend. Today we lost my Grammy Dot. I lost my last great granprent. No more cookies. No more tea parties. No more laughes or giggles. God graced me with 23 years with this amazing woman who taught me more about life than I could have ever learn in school. Because of her and my great Grandpa Charles, I know how to love and be loved.
Right now I'm hurting and I know this pain all to well... but she is so much better and that is what I keep telling myself. She is pain-free and with her husband who she loved more than anything. I know she is happy that she is able to cook and make all sorts of amazing food. I know she is better off, but it still hurts.
Please keep my family in your prayers as we go through this.

Dorothy Jean McCormack, Grandma, gave of herself from morning to night . To Family, Neighbors, Friends, Health care providers, and strangers. Most of all she spent her time caring for the love of her life, my Grandpa, Charles McCormack. For as much as she did for others, she did not like being on the receiving end. Independent, resourceful , and a fierce protector of her family . Those three personality traits she had in spades, They are the ones that resulted in life events that could be made into award winning movies. She was loved dearly and a great void is now in our lives without her.
