Jeanette,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Mark and his family at this very sorrowful time. So sorry that Mack was called "home" while your grand-kids are still so young, but so thankful that you and Mack shared Mark with our family both at school and at church for so many years. We will treasure our memories of your family as we trust in God's plan for the future. Love, Joan and Eddie

Blessings to the Breedlove family from the Braziel family. Jeanette, you and yours are so on our hearts. We have such fond memories of our times with you two. Mack was such a jewel, a gentle man, and a gentleman. There will always be an empty spot at Klatsch without Mack. In His love and ours, Kay and John

Working with Mack on reunion planning showed me what a fine man I had not known well in high school. The bonus was that Jeanette pitched in as well, and it was obvious they were a devoted couple. Mack's passing is a great loss to many. With my sympathy to the Breedlove family,
