My Uncle Mack taught me how to do "the pickup wave". You know, raising the right amount of fingers off the steering wheel at just the right time to acknowledge the oncoming person. Sweet memories of that. I had the opportunity to watch and learn on several occasions going somewhere with him as a little girl. Thanks Uncle Mack!Dorothy Pool

My deepest condolences to the loss of Mack. I've known him all my life - he was part of my family and was always a lot of fun to be around. I haven't seen him in years but I'm sure he's having the time of his life up there with everybody that's gone before him. My prayers for Julia Faye and his immediate family.
