Mrs. Mackey, Jim, Barbara, and family - please know you are being supported by many friends during this difficult time. The leaving of one so dearly loved is hard to accept. But he will remain with you always. How grateful I am that we are within the generations that communicated with letters and photos rather than texts and digital images. These remembrances will be held especially dear.
