  1. Sherri, I am so sorry for your loss, but I am praying for you all that God will comfort you and hold you in the palm of His hand. Although I know he will be deeply missed, I am celebrating your father’s new life with Christ with you all. He has been healed and made whole again and has been reunited with his loved ones that have passed before us. He is in a place where he is surrounded by a depth of love that is unimaginable, a place where there is no such thing as time. Most importantly he has been United with Christ. He lived a great life and touched the lives of so many people, including mine. He will be forever remembered for his generosity, his kind heart, his laughter and sense of humor. I love you all very much.

  8. Hi Joyce, just thinking of you during this time. Loved Mack and he was a friend to all at GDOT. I put his information on FACEBOOK this morning so about 1,000 people in Ashburn now know we have lost a great guy and a member of one of Ashburn’s pioneer families. I hope you enjoy your time with your daughter and her family. Thanks for being the great Christian that you are and giving the Christian love you gave to us here in Jesup. I will always think great thoughts of you and Mack when I pass by your house going to town. Love, David

    • Hi Everyone- I was trying to locate Mack recently, and I was very sad to find that Mack has recently passed. He was my first cousin and I had such great memories of visiting Uncle Ben and Aunt Ruby’s family as a child. Mack was such a great person and always had a smile on his face. I would really appreciate hearing from any family. My prayers go out to the family.
