Mac and Tressa were truly "the salt of the earth"...such good people...so pure and gentle. When I first started selling machinery after coming back from the service, Mac and several of his friends would meet about 3 PM each day at LaPatkin's cafe in Wheatfield......Mac would fire question after question at me...even before I had answered the first one, he was on to the next! Really threw me for awhile and then I realized that he was playing with me! What a great man........I NEVER left seeing him but that he said "Thank you" to me!!!! I wish the family well and want them to know what GREAT folks Tressa and Mac were.......God bless.

On holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day, our family plus Mac and Tressa would make homemade ice cream and have angelfood cake, brownies, peach cobbler, and cookies plus all the toppings for the ice cream sundaes. Sharing the joy of ice cream on a hot summer day with good friends is a memory we will never forget.

Mac and Tressa were real treasures in our family. She never failed to remember us at Christmas with a cheery letter included with their card to catch us up on family, as we had moved to the Southwest for Larry’s work many years ago. They gave to family and others unstintingly. Michele, our heartfelt condolences on your loss again and to all the family and friends that will hold Mac and Tressa in their hearts always, we send our love and take comfort in knowing they are together and with the Lord they loved. Sincerely, Sharon. and Larry Hostetler

We have so many fond memories of Mac and Tressa. They were \"family\" to us. They always were at Adam\'s sporting events when he was younger and we included them for holiday meals. Rest In Peace, Mac. We know you are back with Tressa again. Condolences to the family.
