The family wishes to express their deepest appreciation to Dr. Jamison, Dr. McCoy, and all of the nurses and staff at Lewis Gale Montgomery Regional Hospital for their exceptional care above and beyond.

The family will receive friends on Monday, January 7, 2013 from 5 until 7 p.m. at Harbor of Hope Pentecostal Holiness Church at 2720 Roanoke Street, Christiansburg.
