    Mr.McKenzie, Scott, Greg and family:
    I’m very sorry for the loss of the Special Lady in your lives. We go back a lot of years in time, but still have the fondest memories of you all. Mrs. McKenzie loved and supported her family. Baseball games were always fun and out of town games especially. I had the privilege of seeing he not too long ago. Continue to carry her in your heart and she will never leave you.
