When you get the chance to speak with those who knew Keffer well, it is easy to forget that this tragedy happened over a decade ago. The pain of the tragedy appears to still be very fresh to those whose lives he touched.
I was humbled to hear Nakia Greer break down several times during our coversation as he talked about the loss of his roommate, teammate and friend.
Former Bulldog head coach Jackie Sherill speaks about Keffer in almost a reverent tone. I was very grateful to Coach for taking the time out to speak with me. When I told him why I was calling we talked for over an hour. It is a conversation I will always treasure.
The McGee family was kind enough to grant us permission to do the series on Keffer and for that I will always be eternally thankful. The gratitude the McGees have for the Bulldog family is something we all should be very proud of.
When we lost Keffer, we lost one of us. His life is worthy of our celebration and his passing worthy of our rememberance.
Once again we proudly present the Keffer McGee story.
