I will never forget the first time I met Mr.Mack. I was returning home after a morning of turkey hunting with Mack's son in-law, Ben Naron. Ben suggested we stop by and visit. As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted with a firm handshake and Mack's unforgettable smile. Wasting no time, Mack went straight to the point, looking me dead in the eye he stated "Ben tells me your a country boy" and reaches onto his refrigerator and pulls out a plastic margarin bowl and pops off the top and offers his "special surprise" inside. I never skipped a beat reached inside and grabbed a piece of his offering and replied "Oh man, cold chitterlings, thanks! Mack looked over to Ben and nodded approvingly "Yep, he's country! We became instant friends. Mack's life was a perfect example of someone who truly loved life and seldom passed an opportunity to try and make someone laugh. I will never forget him.
