Our Friend Mac


Bryan and I could hardly believe it when we found out that Mac had passed away this week, how could that be possible. We had just been hanging out with him saturday evening at the coffee shop,drinking coffee and talking art and whatever else popped up.

We wanted to share some of our photos with all of you. This is the way we knew Mac on a daily basis. He was always interesting, fun, and a great conversationalist!















We went out this evening and had dinner at his favorite restaurant then walked over to the coffeeshop for a couple of espressos in his honor. None of this seems real and we half expected to see him come strolling by the front window. We will certainly miss him!!

You guys are lucky to have spent so much time with Mac. I got maybe around 6 hours or so of flesh time the couple of times he visited St. Louis. I was hoping he would come this summer but it didn't happen.

It is nice to see him smiling and joking and I'm upset that he didn't get to advance relations with his new neighbor or live long enough to move into the future he wanted to help create.

I'm sorry to read of your friends passing, there's so much life in these photos and more still, I bet, in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. Be well.

Thank you so much for the photos of Mac having fun on his home turf. If you don't mind, I'm going to post your link on my memorial: araqintablogspot.com
He was a beautiful man, and it's a relief to me he had friends close-by... as it must be comforting to you to have his friends around you to mourn with.
You mention Mac and his kitties, Spook and Ebe, whom he adored, but you don't mention their fate. I was told by his mom that they were taken to animal shelter. Do you happen to know which one? It seems Mac would want them to find homes.
Peace to you...
