My name is Aiden Mckinney her great-grandson and I am very sad that she died and so is the rest of my family. we miss her dearly and we hope she is in a better place and wherever she is we hope she is ok. I send all my hopes and prayers towards her. I went to her funeral it was very sad and my grandpa Rob Greer said some nice things he almost cried but stayed strong and did not.
