Our sincere Condolences to the McCarthy family.We mourn your loss.
So sorry for your family's loss.
I am so sorry for the loss of your mother.
Met this lovely lady just recently. She was one of my moms friends and I so much enjoyed talking to her when I visited mom. She was a caring and friendly lady. She will be missed by all.
I knew Alice quite well. We met at church and when I took care of her husband at Quality Health. We could always make each other smile. She had wonderful stories that she shared with me. I saw her several times at Kerri and Todd's house and enjoyed her company. My daughter even worked at down under for a while. She was a wonderful woman and I am glad the church honored her at the 150th anniversary. I will always remember her.

We will always remember your smiles and love every Halloween and the joy it brought you to dress up as one of Aiden's special creations! So much love to all your family at this difficult time.
