Dearest Carolyn,

I was so saddened to read of Mack's passing. He was truly a dear, sweet man and will be sorely missed by all those whose lives he touched. I'll never forget those few years we worked together at Gallo's. He was especially kind to me, as he was to all. I am praying that you and your family may find comfort in God's promises. Heaven gained an angel!

Jo Beth
