My dad, William Young, was in the Navy with "Mac". We have such fond memories of the reunions that they planned together. I am so sorry that we are just learning of his passing. We left him an email just a few days ago because mom, Dora, who will be 90 soon wanted to drive up and have lunch with him.
We will miss him. Our best to his family, we will not forget that smile ever.

To Bumpa - I love you very much. Thinking of your face always made me smile and still does. I know you are enjoying yourself beyond our wildest imagination right now - keeping company with old and new friends and our Lord Jesus Christ.

So sorry for your loss Gary...I know how difficult it is since losing my father a few months ago. I can see from the beautiful pictures that he had a loving family that made him very happy throughout his life.
Deepest sympathy to you and your family.
