He took to his Instagram and shared a photo of McKee and her mom, Angie Douthit, with the caption, “My condolences, rest in peace.”
The family announced Douthit’s passing on Instagram on Tuesday.
“On Monday, December 9 at 11:37pm, Angie finished her race,” the caption on the post read. “Her last days were spent lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they prayed, sang, and shared funny Angie stories.”
It continued: “Angie found out about her cancer in January 2018. She wanted to keep everyone informed of what was going on so she made a social media post. The next day she made another. And then another. And what started as an easy way to convey information turned into wildfire of hope that spread over the world. She wasn’t able to sleep an entire night so she would wake up around 3am to write her posts.”
“But this is where you pick up the baton and run like she did mighty warrior. You can choose this day to be like Angie and use your social media engagements to make a difference rather than disaster, to spread love and not hate, and to always be kind,” the post concluded.
After her passing, McKee shared a message on Instagram about how her mom changed her dad through Christ.
“All of us kids have seen a huge difference in dad over the last two years. When mom first got sick, dad shut down and it was hard for him to even talk. Yesterday when we worshipped together, mom was too weak to move. Dad grabbed her hand and lifted it in the air so she could worship. Instead of how dad acted two years ago, he has been able to lead us toward Christ. People are watching you. Be that example of Christ.
