I've been at a total loss for words since hearing of Mac's passing, as I always believed his endless energy and strength of character would cause him to live to 110 and beyond. I've not only lost a good friend, but a mentor and man of immeasurable honesty and goodness. I will miss our phone calls lamenting the state of the economy, speculating on the ups and downs of real estate and what garden seeds I should plant this year. Mac was not only generous of his time, but sharing of his wisdom. Whenever I told him about a problem, his response was always, “Well now, let me see…” His creativity partnered with good common sense made him a standout among all men. His parting leaves a giant hole in my heart that will never be filled by anyone else and I will miss him terribly. I offer my hope and prayers for nothing but happy memories to his wonderful wife, Dianne, and his gracious family.
