Janet, Sorry we did not hear of your Dad's passing until after his services. Just wanted you to know that your Dad was always such a great friend to the Flinchum girls. He hired me for my first job at the hospital. He and Dad were great pals and enjoyed hanging out together and playing golf. You just know they are having a great time in heaven now with some of their other buddies. Take care and remember that you are in my prayers. Love, Carol Flinchum Smith

Cathy,Robin,& Janet - I was sorry to hear about Graham's passing.I don't remember Graham not being a part of the May family. Graham & my dad were both no nonsense guys, but they were the very best. I'm sure they're having a drink right now & I'm sure I'll see them again. I think about Ruby always calling me "Love" - she was a tremendous friend & I miss her also. Sorry I couldn't make it to the services - you guys are in my thoughts.
