I have very fond memories of going to Mr and Mrs Mac's for dinner and bible study. She opened her house for anyone who wanted to come and fellowship, break bread, and study God's word. Always greeted with a smile and a hug. She lived as she believed and was a true child of Christ. She is a rare type of person that everyone felt loved, welcomed and at home. Heaven is rejoicing and she is renewing old acquaintances. We are selfish and will miss her greatly, but the Angel's are rejoicing. Thank you Lord for a lady like Mrs Mac. Loving memories

What a joy, privilege, honor and blessing it has been to know and be friends with this wonderful lady for the last 24 years. Our Wednesday mornings and movie days won’t be the same without her. This is not “Goodbye” but “i’ll See you later. “
