Condolences to the MacKay family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.

Ed was a favorite client of mine while I was Veterans' Services Officer in Northbridge. I haven't seen him since retiring in 2012, but often thought of him. He was always a nice kind gentleman.
