I'll miss you, Mac. Your dry sense of humor and stories from way back when always kept things interesting. You were loyal and protective towards the ones you loved. You will always be remembered for your love for photography, wood carving, flowers, flying drones, taking road trips, Diet Pepsi, and of course your German Shepherds. I hope you're resting easy with Aunt Mim, Uncle Bud, Trubby, Missy, and Junior.

-Sarah
