Vicki - Thinking of you and keeping you in my thoughts
I had the privilege of working with Dr McCabe
at Weirton Steel. He was a very special man. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. My prayers
and thoughts are with you at this very difficult time.
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.
