Mac, words can’t express how much I miss you and it’s hard accepting the fact I won’t see your smiling face anymore.
Thank you for all the amazing memories and smiles the last 7 years. You will always have a place in my heart.

I liked hearing Mack talk and the sound of his voice. I believe y'all had two of the best parents children could have. The last time I got to talk with him, he talked about his faith in Jesus Christ. He was very encouraging.

I have great memories of brother Mack. He taught me how to replace brake pads on my first car, in the pouring rain. I remember the way he could pray in our church at Daniel Baptist. He always had an encouraging word for us know it all teenage boys. Pain and loss have their voice but in Jesus never the last say.

Hoping that comfort and peace may find their ways to the family. Angie, Teresa and Stephanie...truly saddened to hear of your dad's passing. I have many fond memories of him. He used to let me sit in the passenger seat of his old truck when I was a kid and we would talk about it while we waited for everyone to "get done" at Daniel on Sundays...sometimes Wednesdays. It seems so long ago now, but I still remember, and the world was a better place with him in it. He was good man. I also think I recall him and Elaine singing a "special' every now and then...
Truly a solid old school Richmond Hill personality. Prayers...

Deep sorrow from Pat and I and Patty we share your hurt and loss. myself have known Mack since he came to the Hill. He always was a blessing to talk to, never heard him say anything bad about anyone which is rare in itself. Family treasure what he taught you. Way too sad this loss. Praying for you all.
