“You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.” Author Unknown.

The family will receive friends at 1 P.M. on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 at McCoy Funeral Home, 150 Country Club Dr SW, Blacksburg VA. Funeral services will immediately follow visitation at 2 P.M.
