One comment on “JOHN P MCKEE

  1. I miss you more than anyone knows. Many have forgotten. Only a handful call to check if I am “OK”. I am so saddened by the lack of support from your department. Aside of a few, since day one, no one calls. On your EOW, again only a few. However, I am not angry at them. They are who they are. It is what it is.
    Bella and Kyle are growing fast and ALWAYS speak of you. Shawn is doing your name justice. He is YOUR twin hunny. A wonderful young man, with a heart of gold—-Just like you. Lord knows I love life, but he also knows that part of me died with you, and I will forever love you.
    Until we Meet Again My love
    Mrs. John P McKee
