WE want to pass on our deepest sympathies to the McKinley family. We have such great memories of Sally and you all from our time living on Davis Road. Sally was a very kind and caring person that cared deeply for her family and others. Such a tragic accident. We pray for her and all of you in moving through these rough times. We hope that Billy recovers physically very quickly. May you take great comfort in the many years together and the great times! I know we do.
