So sorry to hear of Ebert's passing. Although, I didn't get to see Ebert often, he was a loved member of our family. My Mom and Dad (Tinker and Alma) were so proud of him. He has a special place in our hearts. His friendly, fun personality was a joy! I am blessed to have him as my cousin.

I know he was an awesome husband, father, grandfather and brother. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I feel very blessed that I had to come to know "Mac". What a great person, always smiling, and his sense of humor was amazing. I will never forget when our family introduced him to the game "spoons" it was a lot of fun and a great memory that I will cherish. He was an outstanding husband, father, grandpa and friend he will be missed very much. Praying for the everyone and sending hugs. Rest in peace "Mac". I'll definately see you again some day.

Your friend Jill
