    I would like to extend my condolences to Ms. Judy and each family member at the loss of Mac. I am truly thankful to have had the privilege of meeting Mac and Judy several years, and for the love and friendship through the years. May God bless and comfort you now and in the days ahead.

    I would like to extend my condolences to the McKeoun Family. Mac was one of the senior officers on the first shift I was assigned to as a Newport News Police Officer and he was a positive influence on all of us. The shift that we worked attracted a lot of the younger officers and he was a good role model for us. My prayers are with your family.

    Judy and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Mac was a wonderful person who loved his family dearly. I remember riding with Mac in patrol and how fondly he talked about his family. Mac was quiet but once you got to know him he always considered you a friend. Thanks for sharing Mac with the PD family and always know each of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Trent
