    Dear Janet & Family
    I first met “Mac” over 25 years ago at the TPA park, he was letting one of his dogs run and we struck up a conversation about our love of animals. I told him when I die, I want to be in that heavenly barn, taking care of all the animals. He agreed that would really be great.. He will be missed. Thinking of you
