John and Sylvia Mackey

Posted by Unknown Thursday, July 7, 2011

With the passing of Mr. John Mackey, the community should rise in tribute and acknowledge the love, care and steadfastness of his wife, Sylvia. She demonstrated the strength in life that he possessed on the football field. Constantly, by his side, she was his nurse, advocate and field general in the fight with the NFL for its veteran players.

She refused to allow pity to beset the condition of Mr. Mackey. She saw his condition as another contestant in the game of life. She orchestrated the plays and set the tone for the treatment of Mr. Mackey, a football legend.

As the tributes pour in for Mr. John Mackey, my tribute goes to the virtuous woman who stood by his side, Mrs. Sylvia Mackey.
