    Mac was a very good and humble man of God. I remember when he was saved, baptized and ordained as a deacon at the EX Baptist church. Geri and Carol, i know you will miss him dearly. We love you and pray God will wrap his loving arms around you and the boys in the days ahead. Your family will always be dear to us.

    I attended school with Mac and remember him as a well liked person, who was the President of the class of 1960. May the peace of Our Lord and Savior be with you and your family.
