  3. Aunt Martha, Uncle Mac was a wonderful person and will be missed. I have good memories of our Sunday dinners at Grandpa and Grandma Carmickle\’s house.

Of course, you would be in the kitchen with Grandma Carmickle and mother, laughing and helping get dinner ready. All the cousins would be hanging from the trees in the front yard or walking on top of the fence. Uncle Mac was a loved by all his family. love you, Lurenda
