    May God hold each and every family member in the palm of his hand and surround y’all with a hedge of Angels. Makie is walking on the streets of Gold with his old buddy Lenny.
    Prayers to all.

    God bless all of Mackie’s family and friends. He was a wonderful young man. Camden County High School class of 1982 has lost a loving friend and classmate. May God strengthen us all during this difficult time.

    He always had a smile and kind words on his lips. Teaching was a passion for him and he made that fact well known. I am so sorry for the world and his family. My heart goes out to you.
