MESSAGES TO MCKAI FLOAT TO THE HEAVENS

Balloon on right has a special message from McKai Flint’s cousin, Taylor Royer (Photo by Amy Flint, McKai’s mother)

Last year on 02/20/2017, our hearts were broken and our world was shattered when our son, brother, and friend, McKai Flint committed suicide. When this happens, everyone is affected in SO many ways. The ripple effect it has on a community is far reaching. We felt SO overwhelmed and devastated, yet our community, family and friends wrapped around us immediately and we knew we were supported and McKai had been loved.

We held a Memorial Service for McKai with the generosity of South Park Schools, in the Multi-purpose room, anticipating a guess of 150 attendees. We were amazed to see more than 300 in attendance - standing room only! This is an example of how we all touch one another and even when we feel alone, we are NOT!

Throughout this past year, we have had so much support from our community. During our time of grieving, we were surrounded by emotional, food and financial support that has carried us through this year!

We would like to say, Thank You on this anniversary, to All of our family, friends and community for your support!

This IS Community! Obviously,this is not an exhaustive list, we truly appreciate all who have touched our lives! Thank you to McKai’s friends, who knew and loved him! We miss McKai and Love our Community!

Sincerely with great appreciation,

Amy and Heather Flint
