One thing I remember about Mac was his easy smile.  I know he will be missed by those who loved him.  May you all be comforted with the hope that comes from knowing he is with Jesus!  Blessings, Laura Wilson (Bill & Anna Mae's daughter)



My family's condolences go out he was a very loving man and I love him with every fiber of my being with you will be very missed and very loved



I just spoke with Marge a few minutes ago. I hadn't been aware of Mac's passing, although I live right across the hall. I only knew Mac for a couple of years, but he was one of the sweetest, kindest persons I had ever met. I will miss "Hi Debbie, have a nice day", every time we crossed paths. I will truly miss you Mac. Marge, you and the family have my deepest sympathies. But remember, you will spend eternity together one day. All my love to you.



I love you grandpa. I will miss you so much. I will see you again one day.
