Dear Kathy & girls, There will never be another truer friend than "Mac- a - doo". His friend ship to us when Ruthel passed will always be special to me. I can only imagine what those two will be up to together now. Love , Wanda

My sincere sympathy in the loss of Mack. I worked at Bigelow Carpets and knew Mack well. He was a good friend and a wonderful person. I pray for peace and comfort for your family during this difficult time. Also my son, Eric Bedingfield, sends his sympathy also as he was a friend of the family as well.

May God bless you all,
Feda Bedingfield Carmouche and Eric Bedingfield
