Katie and family- Sending you our deepest condolences and prayers during this difficult time. I remember Kenzie when I had her in First Grade and I remember that she was a crazy driver with her wheel chair and nothing would stop her! She was smart and full of sass which made us all smile and love her!❤️

Prayers and deepest condolences! I had Mackenzie as a student East High in Sioux City. She was a very bright student, a vibrant, and sassy young lady. She had a salty sense of humor. She was a such joy to be around in school and to have in class. Love and prayers.

Kenz you were always the centerpiece at all gatherings smart and so mature for your young age......and soooo sassy.!!......despite being 30+ years older than you it always felt like we were on the same wave-link on everything (football, politics, pop culture, jokes, etc.).......sometimes you shared your opinion and sometimes you didn’t (LOL).......can so clearly see that look on your face! :-))).......and your loyalty as a Big Red fan was unflappably despite their ups and made everyone smile and you will always be remembered with a smile.....although you grew up over the past several years we will always remember you as the biggest little girl we ever knew.....with all our Respect and Love in our Hearts, your good friends, Rob and Rita

Sweet, sweet, McKenzie, gone to soon. A beautiful young lady who in despite of her limitations lived her life well - a quick wit and loving presence.

Our plan was for me to take McKenzie (well, meet her ) to the Humane Society to possibly select another cat. We both knew this would probably not happen due to some of the aides’ allergies to cats, but it was our dream plan.

McKenzie, your life journey was shortened, but your journey to heaven is glorious and everlasting. I believe we will meet again. Please know you brought joy to my life. I am glad I got to see you for the last time at Christmas and see your Christmas tree.

Love, Dotty

One of my favorites is remembering how sometimes during classes in high school something would strike me as funny. Mackenzie was great at sensing this. She would build on whatever started me laughing until I would laugh so hard I'd have to leave the classroom to calm down. Not sure why, but we never got in trouble for this! I'd also give her part of her lunch during class, and we got by with that too. Her teachers were very understanding!

Kenzie, my heart is heavy and I am saddened. Never was I prepared to receive such news. I wish we could have seen one another one last time as we planned, but it's funny how things work out at times. From every fireball shot to you yelling at me from wanting to watch Titanic over and over 🤗a wonderful memory was made. The little sister I never had. With a kiss to the forehead that you hated so much,Love you dearly 😘 Rest peacefully
