Mr McKinley although you wanted us your carers to call you Russell.My time with you was short but you left an indelible mark on me with the kindness you and your Kathleen showed to us.I know you are in a good place now with your loving wife, but you are sorely missed.
You had an impish sense of humour which i will miss.
You are now with the angels but you will forever be in our hearts.
Go well.
Fatima.
