Where do I begin....I met Mac 15 yrs ago in Chat...He was such a crazy but fun loving guy...He was known as the blues man..little did I know what that meant...I soon found out tho...He was the best blues Dj in chat...He will always hold that title. So of course Mr Mac thought he liked being the king ...He decided to take it a bit farther and challenge us to Gammon and Acey Deucy.. Unfortunately His games left a lot to the imagination...that is one accomplishment I just couldn't give to you Mac man...I loved whooping your butt!!..As time progressed we became the best of Friends...even tho I was still kicking his butt in Acey ..The memories I hold will always be in my heart.. He was always there when someone needed him..either to Dj....or just talk ...You will never know how many lives you touched mac.. I will always love you my dear Sweet Johnn..with an IE....Rest in peace Mac Man...To Pat and Dana.....Mac worshiped the ground you two walked on...I remember countless of hours talking about the both of you...(oh and of course watching you take your cat nap on the recliner Pat.)..You guys gave Mac a reason to keep going...always there to help him out..and taking care of him..for that I thank you so very much.. My heart is with you both at this time....Take care of that little Muffy...she is a big part of mac..and is there to help you both thru this....Last but not least...Tree Brat..Your Dad was so proud of and loved you so much..I can remember him telling me how he taught you to Dj...When you would come in the room...His face would light up...He would say....right there is a chip off the old block...My heart goes out to you in this trying time ..Just know..he loved you...Johnn..with and IE....this is Robineeeeeeeeeeee...Soar high with the Angels ..I know you will be looking over me......I love you Johnn...with and IE..and miss you dearly....hugzzzz you tight one more time
