I am so sorry for your loss. I truly loved Mack and will miss him. I am glad I did get to see him the last time he was in Durham.
I'm sorry I cannot attend the service but know that I am there in spirit. I have an appointment that I can't break as it takes a month and multiple lawyers to get transportation to my appointments now.
Love you guys.
