    I remember Mr Stubblefield when he had Carbon Trading Post. He was always so nice to us little snotty nosed kids. I will always remember his smile and kindness. Always on Saturdays we would go get Cracker Jacks and watch cartoons. I also appreciated how he always spoke well of my grandparents, ML and Sallie Gilbert. Mr. Mack was one wonderful man and I know he is in heaven smiling at his family.

    Mack was always so pleasant and always had something witty to say. He was such a pillar of the community. We lift up prayers for the family.
