The family extends their thanks to the people of Scotland Neck and the community of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Richmond, VA for prayers and kindness during this difficult time. We are grateful for the hospice care received and for the care of the women from Home Life Care and the staff, doctors, and nurses at Edgecombe Vidant Hospital in Tarboro.

Thank you for teaching drafting and mechanical cal drawing for all of those years at Chantilly high school. It led to a lifetime of drafting. I am sorry it took so many years to learn of your passing. I hope your family finds some comfort in the fact you helped shape many lives. A J Abdo chantilly class of 1986
