To The Macdonald Family,

Our condolences for the passing of " Mr. Macdonald". He is a man we have respected for our entire lives- a man whose calm, sincere voice over the PA at Ryan, commanded immediate respect and attention. A fine man and gentleman.

Dear Macdonald Family,
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your beloved father. What an incredible life he lived - he was a wonderful husband, a loving father, and a gifted educator. The students at Ryan Elementary, including me, were so lucky to have him as our principal. He and your mom were always so kind to me, and they were such good friends to my parents. I know you have so many wonderful and cherished memories that will sustain and comfort you during this difficult...

To all the MacDonald Family:
Please accept our sincerest condolences on the great loss of your father. Although I never had the pleasure of knowing your Father, I can appreciate the job he did with his successful children. His spirit and love will carry onward through you all.
Our prayers are with you. Mike and Elia York

To all the MacDonald Family:
Growing up in the neighborhood your Dad was a great mentor to all of us. Lots of happy memories of those days growing up in Laredo in large part because of him. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dearest Douglas, Eddie, and Annie,
Please know that Memo and I are thinking of you and your families, and holding you close in our hearts. Your Mom and Dad were very special people not just to you, but to so many, who had the blessings of being taught or as in my case, even paddled, by them. They are now at peace and together again. Our prayers go out to all of you. Sally and Memo Gonzalez
