Lifting you all up in prayer for the loss of Mackie. What a blessing he was with his writing. He sure did fight a battle and now he has a brand new set of lungs to sing in the heavenly quoir. I pray God give you all peace.

Mackie was always so special, so talented with his song writing and poetry. He will be singing new songs in Heaven now, and although we miss him here, he has taken that glorious ride into a beautiful eternity. Our prayers are with the family and we pray for God's comfort to sustain you through these times and the days to come. Micki & Charles Carpenter
