I never had the pleasure of meeting your mom but I know you and your brother have done your best to make her time on earth comfortable and safe. I am grateful you let us know of her gentle transition. I hold prayers of comfort and deep sympathy for you, your brother, and your dad. Sending love, light and strength, Vedya

Dear. McCreary family I have thought about you all many times, and have fond memories of my time as caregiver and friend . I'm sorry for your loss. Doris and I had some sweet times together laughing about silly things . She is a wonderful woman and will be missed. Connie and Jeff thank you for being a wonderful example of how to care for your parents. I will be praying for your family. God Bless you all.
