    Although I have not seen Macky since he was a young boy, aunt Arfini would send school pictures of him and Antoinette just about every year so these kept the bond going. We eventually met up with Antoinette and her mom and although weren’t able to reconnect with Macky, the love was still there. I am so sad for his family but I believe in angels and I know they are taking good care of him. I hope one day we can meet with his family. My prayers are with you. p.s. Paul and I will be attending a Mass celebrated in Macky’s honor at the Trappistine chapel tomorrow April 17 at 8am

    Being from and living in Canada, our family was not able to visit cousin Macky and his father, mother and sister as much as we would have liked, but when we were privileged to finally meet, it left a lasting fond memory,, of a dear family full of love. I got my first motorcycle ride on the back of Macy’s cycle.. It was evident with this ride, that the was a person with a heart full of caring and love. From our first visit at their home in Hunstville, it was my start of fondest memories of our southern family.. Macky, we love you. May God bless his wife, children and grandchildren. Rest in peace, dear Macky..
