Joe McCabe passes

I have some sad news to pass along. I just learned this morning that Joe McCabe passed away this weekend while recovering at home from triple bypass surgery.

Joe was a wonderful, gentle human being and I'm so glad to have known him, if only for a handful of years. He has served this organization in many capacities over the years, but has done an amazing job as a repeated member of our nominations committee, helping to shape the direction of WV Writers in a very positive way.

"Positive" is one of the best possible words to describe Joe. He was one of those people you could spend five minutes with and know right away that you're in the presence of a good soul.

Our condolences go out to his wife Hilda and his family.

The memorial service for Joe McCabe will take place at the McCabe's home (82 Manassas Drive, Falling Waters, WV 25419. Phone: 304-274-6986) at 2 PM on Sunday, October 14.

Attendees should bring a covered dish. Joe's wife Hilda says that it will be akin to an Irish wake.
