Cholanda and other family members, may God Bless you and comfort you at this time and always. McKinley was a kind hearted person who enjoyed life and always had a pleasant personality with added humor. I have known McKinley for fifty-four years and was a high school classmate of his. Throughout the years he always was the same, pleasant to everyone. McKinley will be missed by all, but his fun personality will always be remembered. He's at peace now, and doesn't have to go to dialysis. He was a strong person during those trying times and always had a positive attitude about having to get his treatment.

To God be the Glory to this family. McKinley, rest in peace.
