Peace be with you and your family in this time of loss. May God give you the Grace to get through this tragedy. Understanding addiction is difficult. I know this family did all in their power to help McKenzie Jo. Mckenzie Jo, go rest high. The angels sing for you.

I did not know your precious McKenzie but am lifting you up in prayer and thoughts, asking for some peace for you in this incomprehensible loss. Praying you find a way to release her to God's arms where she is held forever more.

Holding the entire Decker family close in my prayers. May God wrap his arms around you and give you peace in your hearts. Miranda, you will always be one of my "own". Hugs to you, sweet girl. Rest high, McKenzie.

I didn't know McKenzie, but my heart hurts for you and your family. I know what you are going through. Two years ago we were in the same position as you are now. We lost our daughter to the opioid epidemic. Just like you, we did everything to help her but this demon was too strong. Know you did everything you could, know that she loved you, and know her soul is at peace. ((Hugs))
