So many of us owed him so much for all the life lessons he taught us when we were young and stupid kids. I was coming to the reunion to thank him for all the lessons he gifted to me. God knew he was tired and called him home. Such a good man and a blessing to everyone who was lucky enough to meet him. Thank you Mac. You were loved. I know Jesus was happy for you to join him on that side.
