    My deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Andrew Mack. His presence on Crystal Avenue will truly be missed. Upon moving into the neighborhood, he quickly connected with his neighbors across the street, beside him and behind him. Both he and my father were passionate about the upkeep of their yard and thus, established a friendship. When my father made his transition, Mr. Mack offered his services to assist my mother with planting. He also shared a few of his own plants. His kind-hearted spirit will be missed by many. WELL, DONE THY GOOD & FAITHFUL SERVANT
