What a Great Man. Many good childhood memories of "making the trip" to Windham all the way from Hudson to spend time with the McCoy & Simpson clan with my Grandmother. Say hello to Harlen for me, its been a long time.

For Babs and the rest of the McCoy family, all are in my thoughts with your loss. i always liked your Dad Babs, I thought he was funny! i remember him coming home covered in paint to a house that always had extra kids in it and not seeming to mind that we were there. That you all turned out so well is a testament to him and his love for you.

To cousins Gary, Mike, Mark, Roberta, Pat, Babs, Val, and Joyce. It was well over 20 years ago when I was visiting your dad that I engaged him in a deep conversation about eternal matters. At end of that lengthy discussion your dad placed his faith and trust in his Savior, Jesus Christ. May you take comfort in knowing that because of that decision he is now enjoying everlasting LIFE with the Lord. Please know that my prayers and thoughts are with all of you. May you know and rest in the peace that only God can give.
