So sorry to hear about Aunt Mac's home-going. Enjoyed my visit with her before COVID hit. She was a special lady. She is the last of our Moore aunts and uncles. Prayers are with you Sheena and family and all the cousins. God Bless you. Another deposit in Heaven for us.Charlotte (Moore) DigbyMurray's youngest daughter
