  23. Anne, Lori, Jackie and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mac. He was a wonderful man with an infectious laugh that lit up a room. He was such a huge part of my childhood, I have such fond memories of him. From travelling to your lake lot listening and singing along to Bryan Adams, going to my first concert (The Beach Boys), to taking Jackie and I to Chemo to work with him, to him making us his famous mushroom soup sandwiches. All memories I will treasure. Please know that he put a smile on so many faces just by entering a room. A great man that will be greatly missed!
