Lovingston
Nelson County, VA

Sadly we report the passing of a person that became a long time friend to BRL. Pat Jones-McCray died this past weekend.

Below is the pasted text from the VDC Facebook page. RIP Pat, we will miss you.

“Friends, our own Pat Jones-McCray passed away this past weekend. This is a difficult and shocking announcement to make because for so long, Pat has been a major driving force behind VDC. She had taken a well-deserved step back from the day-to-day operations of the company, but was still very involved in all of our lives.

For the first few years, she populated this and our other social media spaces. At first I was struck by how difficult it was to find a picture of her, but now it makes sense. She was the one behind the camera letting you all in on our world. She was the one behind the scenes pushing and guiding us in the right direction.

She is a huge reason we are here today, on the cusp of finishing this project, and it pains me to think that she will not see the result of so much of her own hard work. We ask that you keep her husband John and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

We will miss her and her tenacious spirit greatly.”
