  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed talking to Mr. McKay while his wife was in therapy at KORT Physical Therapy. He loved his family and talked about them and his place at Kentucky Lake. My wife Pat and I were neighbors of Joey and Faith Ann for many years. My condolences to Stan and your entire family. Prayers for you all. May God comfort you all with His Holy Spirit at this time. God bless you all. In Christ, Kelly and Pat Vanover.

  2. What a well lived, long life! Jody was an amazing man to everyone! Still, such heartbreak 💔 for the McKay family. I’m not ready to venture out but know all the McKays are in my thoughts and have my deepest sympathies ❤️‍🩹
    Love,
    Karen McKay Asbell
