It is the McKinney’s who lost their son, Jayden McKinney, who was in the passenger seat of the vehicle. I had only spoken to him once and from me and other classmates he had he was a VERY sweet and kind kid. Jayden was very sweet and was also very caring kid. I cou go on and on about how much he inspired people from the junior high and high school with his personality. Jayden will always be there even if he is not with us. “BE STRONG AND TAKE HEART ALL YOU WHO HOPE IN THE LORD.” PSALM 31:24 Fly high Jayden. We love you so much🤍 sending prayers to the McKinney family🫶🏼
