    How do you say goodbye to a lifetime best friend ? someone who has been in your life for 62 years? All the thousands of memories that are there, all our adventures from grade school through our teenage years,our westside Neighborhood, our early dating years, through our time in the military, where we spent time together in the same unit in California and Japan and even Vietnam! We worked at the same place when we got out of service! and then you met Diane ! and then you were married !and then shortly after you and Diane introduced me to the most precious woman in my life! Barbara ! She was a blessing to me for 42 years of marriage before we lost her on that most terrible day of my life ! I told you a few years ago that for that act of thoughtfulness and kindness alone God would reserve A place for you in heaven and I’m sure he has! I wish I had visited you more often! I wish we could have more conversations ! I so loved our visits to your apartment in Wilmington ,where you and I and Ellie would sit and talk for hours! You have been My lifetime friend and as close as a brother to me! And i love you as a brother ! We have always stayed in touch and we were always interested in each others lives! Your loss from my life is almost unbearable! I will Suffer this until I am gone! And yes, Praise God, we will all meet again ! I pray for all of us that have lost you from our lives ! Your family and your friends ! For all of those whose lives you have touched! I pray for comforting and peace of mind! Thank you Mack for your lifetime of friendship ! I love you brother !!!!!!!

    Shannon and family, We are saddened to hear of your loss. I hope you find some comfort in knowing what a great man Mack was. I have so many fond memories of his time in Mass. All the bike rides we took, lunches, cookouts and my two favorites, how we drank milkshakes on the front porch and me trying to convince him it wouldn't snow in July. Thank you for your service Mack, we will miss you and since the day you left to go back home, you are always in our thoughts. Charlie and Anne Taft A&C Motorcycles
