Not sure what to say?

My heart sinks as I reflect on the loss of a former teacher and neighbor in Wausa, NE. Glenn and his wife lived across the street from me on Sherman St., and was also instrumental in being a superb teacher in 7th-8th grades. His life was fulfilling and his abilities in education was rewarding for all in his flock. "Thanks" Mac, you're my hero!

We remember the McBurney's from Exira. Earl taught in Exira at the same time. He was also a teacher in Wausa,NE when I was in high-school. Fond memories of the family. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

Many memories of working with Mac through the PTO at Kreft. Sorry to hear of his passing. Thoughts and prayers to the family

Mr. McBurney was a great man. I remember him well as a principal who was kind, fair and held all of us to high standards. Of course back then, as a kid, I didn't truly appreciate what he did for his students. Now, as a teacher I wish more administrators were like him. He knew all of his students and most parents by name, was well respected and visible at the school. Thanks to him for his years dedicated to education.

So sorry for your loss. I remember your family from your years in Exira where you lived down the street from my Grandma, Jim was in my class.

Sympathies from the LC students and families who remember him as we were growing up.
