  3. I am so sad to hear about Mr. McKethan. He was a great man. I really enjoyed taking care of him when he was a patient at the hospital. He was always so sweet to me and always made me laugh no matter how bad he felt. Mrs. McKethan you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You and your daughter were always there by his side no matter what. You could see that he was very loved. If there is anything I can do for you and your family please let me know.

    Yours Truly,

    Mississippi….
