Connie, I just found out tonight of "Mac's" passing, I am SO SORRY. He was, as you know, a great man of God, now with the One he served and gave testimony of. I'll always remember the time we rode to Colors one year together and had a blast! Such great memories! We discovered a new way to get there too! Okay, we got lost and took the long route, I think it was the 2nd time I ever went to Colors. He will surely be missed by all that knew and loved him.

I rmember so much about Pastor i could not begin to write it all down but he will always be my all time favorite Pastor i am so glad i got to talk to him before he had his hip surgery. He just could not wait to get back on his Motorcycle. My best memory is the day his sermon brought my husband to the alter. My husband Loved him i cried the day he left the church i cried the day i heard God took him home but I praise God we will meet again some day .I remember the day we had the fifties night as a young adult get together what fun we had an connie won for being best dressed like the fifties along with my son in law wish i could find those pictures. I remember how he went to school with my son Dustin for grandparents day when my parents could not go. After that he became Dustins best buddy an he still has that car Pastor gave him. You will be so missed by so many me being on that list for sure. Rest in Peace an in Gods arms Love Jim an Linda Newman

Dear Connie, I am so sorry to hear about the pastor. I remember when he attacked my Triumph. It was funny. I think he took you for an outing. I also remember when he read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I read that over and over with my kids. You both touched my life. Again...sorry. With much love. Lois
