    I remember HL at the old hickory Drag strip. He was one heck of a dragracer.

    I will always miss seeing Mac at the car shows, running around looking for a deal, he was one of my favorite people. He was a fun guy very respectful, so that makes you do the same. When my wife and I went to a show, cruz in, we started looking for Mac. We have lost a true gentleman and a great friend !!

    Keith…So so sorry to hear about the death of Hildred…He was my favorite cousin, although we didn’t get to spend much time together..Talked on phone from time to time, when he came to Indy would call and we always tried to get together for a visit, and always invited me to go the auction with him….He was always there at the funeral home when someone in our family passed away…If we had known of his passing,we would surely have been there…My brother Jack lives in Mt Juliet…Asked him to try and locate you, so we could express our sympathy, but he was unable to find any information on you…Here is my phone number 317-490-8067…would appreciate a call…Thank you
    Lord Bless
