To Dr. McCabe's Family:

I had the honor and privilege to work as Dr. McCabe's secretary at Weirton Steel for several years.  He was a devoted physician, passionate about his work, and cared deeply for all those who sought his treatment and advice.

Often we would talk about our families, and he would speak so highly and fondly of his children and their children.

I remember how he and Virginia loved to travel to visit the many places they found interesting.

I pray you find peace knowing your parents are reunited and celebrating a new life together.
