    Going through school together and the many years since, I don’t remember ever seeing Mack down. He was always up beat and carried the party. A friend to all for sure. Mack, I will always smile when I think of you and you have a special place in my heart. Sit on that cloud and smile down on all of us. Will miss you my friend.

    Mack was a great guy, good athlete, and a good friend in high school, who proved to be a good man and friend in adulthood, as well. I wish we’d had more time to laugh and tell stories. Mack was devoted to his family, and was so proud of them. He loved and was loved. I’ll miss you, Mack.

    Oh Mack, how we loved being your neighbor lo those many years ago in Ft. Worth. And how you are going to be missed by me and all your friends and family. I gave Penny a message for you to give Paul when you guys are out fishing and I’m sure you won’t forget. You know I couldn’t close this without saying thanks for the help after Paul died, oh yeah, Boomer Sooner!!!! Couldn’t resist and if you had thought of it when Paul passed away I’m sure you would have said Roll Tide. Love you and the family, I’ll help Penny as much as I can from 12 hours away.

    Penny, you and Mac were and still are such dear friends of ours. We have so many memories when we think back on the many years we have known you. We plan on coming to Nashville to attend Mac’s funeral. Mac has meant so much to us as have you. See you soon.
