    My prayers go out to Mrs.Mac & his children .I met Mac when he was 10 yrs sober. He always had time to talk with me and share his knowledge in my early years. He always told it like it is whether I wanted to hear it or not.He was a good example of quality sobriety.He taught be that God didn’t sober me up to be miserable & to tell your mother you love her. Since he was at Alderwood I would stop in to see him when I delivered just to say hi. He seemed to like that every Tuesday, and it brought a smile to my face. I know he’s in the loving arms of his creator now and BSing with all his buds who went before him. Thanks for 12 stepping me Mac & being a friend over the years. God Bless.

  4. I was so sad to hear of uncle Clayton’s passing. Last time I saw him was when mom was visiting about 7 years ago I took her up to Bellingham to visit. We had such a nice visit and was so happy to see him and aunt Velma. I have a lot of fond memories of spending time with their family while we were growing up. My heart goes out to all the family. It is so hard to lose a loved one, but our memories keep them alive in our hearts until we are reunited with them in heaven! God bless Love, Denise Pleasant
