I only knew Mr. McKinna for a short while, but it was a joy to care for him there was never a full moment with him he will be surely missed. I am so sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather. From the first day I met him it was as if I had known him a while. Thanks for giving me the pleasure of knowing him. Your family will be in my prayers.

I am so very sorry for your loss. He was one of the sweetest, most caring people I have ever known. Whenever I saw him at Mudcats or anywhere he was always the same and always spoke. He will be greatly missed by all that had the pleasure of meeting him. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Pauline Crosby
