Neal McCoy's mother, Virginia "Ginny" McCoy, died on Monday. The country singer posted about her death on Facebook, sharing the story of his mother's immigration from the Philippines and her love for the United States and the Pledge of Allegiance.
McCoy's mother died around 9:50PM on Monday, surrounded by her loved ones, including McCoy and his wife, his brother and sister and their spouses. The singer says he'd spent the last couple weeks with her. She "went very peacefully."
In a Tuesday morning (Feb. 20) Facebook live video, McCoy spoke about his mother and dedicated his daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance to her.
McCoy's father passed away nearly a year ago, and his stepfather, Don McCoy, passed away in 2015.
