I am honored to have worked with a true gentleman with a genuine servant heart. Mack's smiling eyes lit up the room and even more so when he talked about Barbara and his family. I will continue to pray for peace and comfort.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be more that a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they'll live on in our hearts.
Barbara, May your memories comfort you at this time. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you.
