    Just having returned from a long trip overseas, I just found out about Mac’s passing. He has been a very special person to me all my life, since he gave me my first kiss on August 14, 1956. He was a very sweet person, and I regret having been so far away all my life that we lost touch. I am really sorry for your loss.
