Mr. & Mrs. McKee's heart for God allowed them to care for children & help to reunite them with their biological parents. My siblings & I were reunited with our Mother because of the love, support, & guidance they gave to her. Forty years ago they helped her to regain custody of all of her children, and we are grateful to the McKee family. I'm saddened to know that I missed the opportunity to verbalize this to Mrs. & Mr. McKee. To the family...... I pray that the Father comforts, keeps, & heals your hearts of this loss. Your parents (grand parents & great grand parents) loved & cared for many children in the city of Gary, IN when their biological parents were facing a plethora of adversities. The McKees' planted seed in good soil, & their children's children will reap a great harvest.

To the McKee Family,
Your Mother was considered one of the Matriarchs of our neighborhood. She was one of many of the mothers that was involved in the block clubs in the area. The ladies formed a great friendship that lasted forever. Her and my mother would meet at the meetings or grocery store and talk for a long time trying to catch up on everything they thought they missed!!! Your Mom was a sweet lady and was appreciated and respected by all of the children in the neighborhood. Take Comfort in the many great memories that you have with families and friends. I pray that God gives you the Strength you will need to move forward. Your Family now has a new Guardian Angel!!! Be Blessed!!!
