To My Hero
I want to thank you for all the love you’ve giving me. Thank you for giving me the lessons
and tools I needed on life to become who I am today. I will continue to instill what you’ve taught
me to your grandkids. Thank you for showing me what love truly means. Our family will miss
you dearly. You will forever & always be in my heart. I Love You.. Rest In Paradise Dad Until
We Meet Again.
Ronda(Pooh Bear) Mack, Your Oldest Child
Thank you daddy for teaching me to believe in myself, even when no one else was there for
me to lean on. The best advice you gave me, was at 17 years old. You had told me “ Only
you can fix a mistake, if you think you made a mistake correct it”. I have spent years
correcting mistakes, but one thing I have learned through your death is God does not make
mistakes. Because of you, Daddy. I now know Jesus is real and that there really is a place
to prepare for Christ and HIS coming. Your death has made me a believer in the things we
were taught. Even in the midst of my sorrow, you are dancing and now guiding me to a
new direction in life. Because of you daddy I know the Lord is real. Thank you daddy and I
will forever love you.
