I wanted to offer sincere prayers and condolences to the family of Mr. Eddie McKinney on his loss.

I knew Mr. McKinney (and his family) via us being members of First Baptist. In fact he actually sat in the pew in front of my family's but near the opposite end. It was always good to speak to him and shake his hand whenever I was at church.

Mr. McKinney was a good man and will be dearly missed by all his FBC family and by those who've had the pleasure of knowing him.
