    Judy, so very sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Mac. He always had a big smile for me and a story to tell me when I was a little girl and pestered him at the fabric store on a daily basis. He left me with lots of great memories. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Cindi Poulson
