Melissa And Scott, I cannot tell you how sad this makes me. Carole and I reconnected at our hair salon. Our hair appointments frequently were the same days. She told me of her horrible disease. My prayers were with her. So many childhood memories with this wonderful lady. ❤️❤️

Please accept my sympathies for your loss. Mrs. McCoy was my guidance counselor in high school and not too long ago was still offering me guidance while in college. She was a wonderful lady.
