Left prayers, "Lots and lots of love going your way. I hope your lives may be filled with joy. God bless you all."
And heartfelt messages, "May the souls above rest in peace and the souls below find their own peace."
What started out as a simple idea, turned out to be a mass pouring of support, that really warmed McKee's heart.
"It turned out to be way bigger than I imagined and it just really made me happy."
Even though many of the people who signed the banner will never meet those who read their messages, they know deep down inside, their kind gesture, in a time like this, will never be forgotten.
