Deep condolences to the family and friends of David McAtee and to the West Louisville community. While returning home, I was honored to have visited YaYa's late last saturday night to pay my respects to the man I had read about last Friday afternoon. And I was thankful for the delicious BBQ and warm welcome. I will strive to remember him and his story as his is one of both inspiration & love and tragedy & loss. A story and life that deserves remembering.
Blessings and peace to you, may hope and goodness spring from loss and to Mr McAtee, may you rest in peace.
