Steve McNair's Wife: "Thanks for the Support"

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Steve McNair's wife has broken her silence on the death of her NFL Star husband, to offer this message: "Mere words are inadequate to express the gratitude that my family holds for all of the countless expressions of sympathy for the loss of my husband, Steve McNair. Your prayers, kind deeds and outpouring of support throughout this difficult time have been of tremendous comfort to us."

A very classy, admirable response to a situation nobody ever ought to find themselves, in, losing a loved one under circumstances that become a media circus, raising all kind of questions about tyour relationship with that loved one, and whether he was a "good guy" or a "bad guy" and so on. Much love and best wishes to her as she gets on with her life.

Steve McNair's Wife: "Thanks for the Support"

On behalf of herself and her family, she added, "May you be richly blessed for all that you have done and continued to do. You are appreciated beyond measure..."

So does this mean that she does or does not mind that he was cheating on her? I'm confused.

Posted by: Jason at July 28, 2009 5:34 AM

Even if she mind about him cheating, he is already dead, Jason you should be concern about your own life, is Jesus athe head of your life? Today is a good day to accept him.

Does she at least have a name other than "Steve Mcnair's wife"? I know she wasn't an NFL star but does she at least have her own name.

Thank you Elaine, you speak a bit a truth if I do say so myself. God Bless

I'm sure there are no words to express the hurt and pain one would feel after finding out a loved one has died, and the circumstances that caused the death. The emotions would be a roller coaster. Surely Mrs McNair feels more than expressed, but why air that now, the children are fatherless... This situation is so much deeper than a bloggers perspective... God Bless her

Such a classy response under very extraordinary circumstances.

what do want her to say? mechelle has to carry on
with her life and be strong for her children.
all we can do is pray to God to give her the strength to continue in this life.

A brave lady that does what she has to do for herself and her children. She's doing what "most" caring mothers would do for their children and herself. Move on from this event and build a life for herself and her children. I wish her and her children to best.

Posted by: JoeB at July 28, 2009 8:41 AM

You sure do sound confused Jason...Merchelle sounds like a very intellegent classy lady,and I respect her comments at a time like this, and I would hope you would do the same...Bless her...

Posted by: colletta at July 28, 2009 8:43 AM

A very classy response to a very heartbreaking situation. Michelle sounds like a strong intellegent woman and I will keep her and her family in my prayers.

Posted by: Pam at July 28, 2009 9:11 AM

Is it any one's business what she feels about him..this comment is in respnse to Jason. She has handled the situation as well as she can and still try and offer some dignity, healing and protection for her children...she is not going to bleed all over the front page just because you are curious.

Posted by: Pat at July 28, 2009 9:26 AM

May God continue the healing process with Mechelle and her children. It's just so sad that the media continues to make a circus out of issues that should be left to it's own resolve. It's not really an issue of how this brother lost his life neverthe less his children were left fatherless. As for the woman that committed this horrible crime, she was glorified by the media.

Posted by: Carolyn at July 28, 2009 9:37 AM

unfortunate...yes, classy not really bearing in mind she is discrimating against her husband's other child...a fact is she didn't include them to inherit their dad's estate??

Posted by: wast at July 28, 2009 10:06 AM

What the hell is "is Jesus at the head of your life?" comment for. As you said yourself be concerned with your life and not Jason's or anybody elses.

i guess its true yo sins will find u out huh

Posted by: jay at July 28, 2009 10:47 AM

Jason; What kind of stupid question is that. Does it really make a difference at this point or is she supposed to let this circus continue for your benefit. She has made a very honorable expression which will allow her and her family to move forward.Thats what is important at this time.

Posted by: dave at July 28, 2009 10:49 AM

Saying "Thanks for your support" does not mean you condone what the circustances with which you have been through into. She is looking beyond what has happened to her husband and what he did, how he died or their relationship was and saying those who supported her and said "thank you". Sorry it had to be spelled out to you, Jason, but hope it's now clear.

Posted by: WNG at July 28, 2009 10:56 AM

Seems like the NFL star didn't realize what a gem he had at home. May she and her children recover and rebuild their lives.

Posted by: KooKKy at July 28, 2009 11:44 AM

I thought her words were classy, and very well said. Yes, it's unfortunate of the circumstances of how he died, and who was involved. Whether he was cheating or not, it's not wise to express your anger about his actions publicly. She could do that behind closed doors. That's what everyone is looking for, for her to curse him out, even in his death because of the situation. She has children to think about, and I am glad she hasn't given into what people are expecting from her, which is ange and hate for the fact that husband cheated. May God continue to bless her and her family through this tragic event.

Posted by: Desiree at July 28, 2009 12:06 PM

Steve McNair's wife sounds like a very intelligent, classy lady. I'm sure she feels like she's been on a roller coaster ride for the past few weeks. It's terrible to lose a husband, but to have to watch the news of his death and have another woman's picture posted beside his picture every time the story was updated had to be almost unbearable. May she find peace and comfort in remembering the GOOD things about her marriage.

Posted by: Linda at July 28, 2009 12:34 PM

I used to hear Steve McNair give all kinds of props and thanks to his wife as the person who made it possible for him to be on the field every Sunday with all of the injuries he had. I never knew Michelle, or even saw a picture of her before now, but I admired her for doing what her husband said she did for him.
Reading her 'thank you' message now has affirmed for me that she is indeed a strong and totally classy lady.
Michelle I know that with the attitude that you have demonstrated towards life there is nothing that would stop you from succeeding in your endeavors.
God bless you and your family.

Posted by: Zee at July 28, 2009 12:45 PM

Yes, Mrs. McNair is a classy lady to resist rising to the media barbs.

Poor, poor Jason, who has so little excitement in his own life that he looks to sensationalize another sad situation.

Posted by: jade at July 28, 2009 12:47 PM

So does this mean that she does or does not mind that he was cheating on her? I'm confused.
Posted by Jason at July 28, 2009 5:34 AM

Jason what does it matter? Whatever he did is done and over and cannot be undone whether she minds or not. She has the welfare of her/their children to think about and being angry and bitter isn't going to help her one bit in taking care of what she has to deal with from here on out.
You confusion probably stems from the fact that you don't have children.

Posted by: Anonymous at July 28, 2009 12:57 PM

Why must everything be mud dragged and pig dropped. If she has gotten throught this, what the matter with the rest of you who can't. (Notice I said through, not over!)

I will pray for your continued strength thru the madness that will ensue.

Blessings to you!

If that was'nt a wake-up call, sad but you cannot play with other people emotions, some people are strong and some or not, God bless all family members involved

If that was'nt a wake-up call, saaaddd, but you cannot play with other people emotions, some people are strong and some or not, God bless all family members involved

Posted by: Linda at July 28, 2009 1:40 PM

Jason my boy you most definitely are confused, either that or completely heartless, get a life and leave others to live their own.

Posted by: dave at July 28, 2009 1:42 PM

Regardless of how it is explained to you, I'm sure that you will remain confused. That's your nature. You can't be helped.

Posted by: Louise at July 28, 2009 2:16 PM

I thank God that Mrs. McNair was a real classy woman. Surely, as others stated she probably really had her moments of anger in the privacy of her own home. (as if should have been). However, it is the support of family, friends, fans and most of all prayers that keeps her and her 4 boys
going forward.

I feel bad for Mcnair's wife. I do question however why she would only put his belongings and assets in her and there child's name, and not his sons name from a previous woman? seems a little unfair I think.

Posted by: KC at July 28, 2009 3:38 PM


Posted by: David L at July 28, 2009 3:43 PM

Wow Jason,
You're almost as famous as Mcnair and just as stupid.

Posted by: Desiree at July 28, 2009 5:06 PM

that means she a grown women and when someone dies you remember the good time not the bad one let the man live in peace no words could ever change what happen y just move on

Posted by: lucy at July 28, 2009 5:46 PM

What was that man thinking when he betrayed this nice lady? By the way her name is Mechelle.

Posted by: Marie at July 28, 2009 7:05 PM

The only thing we could do are say is to con't to pray for the Mcnair family and let God be the Judge.

Okay, why are people talking about who gets his assets at this point? First of all, she can't put her name on something that he had to approve of and I am sure since she is his wife that HE put her name and his children as his beneficiaries. You don't know the inner workings of this family (and neither do I). The surviving spouse almost ALWAYS has the legal rights to the assets and then the children get their portion if they are of legal age. I am sure that all of his children, regardless of who their mother is, will get something as a result of the death of their father. I am also sure that they would rather have their dad alive than have his assets in a bank account. His death is tragic for his family regardless of the sin he was committing. She lost a husband, the children lost a father and he lost his life.

This is a sad story can't imagine what Michelle is going thru I pray that god give her strength and courage to do the right thing by all means ALL of his kids should be taken care. Inspite of his wrong doings we all have sin.BE BLESS

Posted by: RHONDA at August 1, 2009 11:59 AM

Let the lady be proud and hold her head high God Bless Her

Posted by: Pete at August 1, 2009 12:37 PM

God has already blessed her in more ways than one. The beautiful, supporting, nurturing wife is always the last to know about her husbands immoral ways. Women were created with an inner strength that men don't have, nor can they understand. She'll mourn like the next greiving wife for a bit, but God has already blessed her and her children beyond belief. No longer will he mock or toy with God's Covenant and the gift from God that he received and didn't know how to RESPECT, HONOR or APPRECIATE.

Posted by: The TRUTH at August 1, 2009 12:46 PM

Jason my dear please give it a rest already,what diffrent does it makes. If she forgave him or not for what he did, dont throw stones dahling!!.Why are you confused about somebody else situation.

I'm pretty your opinion about you being confused over what happen is on her to do list(GET IT).

Posted by: Angel at August 1, 2009 1:33 PM

Jason please dahlin give it a rest, why anyways are you confused about someone else situation.

I'm pretty sure your opinion of her is on her to do list GET IT!!!!

Posted by: Angel at August 1, 2009 1:41 PM

Sorry spelling error, but im sure Jason you get my point i will say it twice..

Posted by: Angel at August 1, 2009 1:48 PM

The bitch is dead and so deserve what he got...she will move on and hopefully finds someone that will be faithful to her. If this didn't happen maybe no one would ever find out he was unfaithful to his wife. So sick of these public figures cheating on their spouses and then wants the public and everyone else to feel sorry for them because they make a public apology. In the heat of the moment I'm sure they never think about the consequences.
