  • Dear McDonough & Carson Family,

    Our team is deeply saddened to hear of Mrs. Ann’s passing. Though we never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Ann, we’ve worked with Derek for over a year and have always been so very impressed with his empathy, courtesy, thoughtfulness and professionalism for all of those around him. We can only imagine that those qualities were instilled in Derek through Mrs. Ann’s upbringing.

    We pray that God will bless you all in this time and bring peace to your hearts.

    With love,
    Andrew Streets & William S. Wolff
