I was fortunate to be Mr. Cason's secretary at Walhalla Elementary School. I can truly say that I have never worked for a better supervisor. May God give his family the peace that passes all understanding. Rest in Peace, Mr. C......I will always cherish and remember all the fun times we shared!

Oh the many fond memories I have of Mack! From a young girl in Jr. High where he was my guidance counselor, to the youth program and choir at St. Mark, then a young teacher learning from his many creative initiatives, to more recent times of hearing about his visits to my parents at Lila Doyle and the gifts of his service through the prison ministry- Mack Cason was full of life and love and laughter who shared that with all who were blessed to know him. Doodle and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers now and in the days ahead. Mack is not hurting anymore and I can hear him singing with the angels in heaven. Love to you all.

Mr. Cason hired me to work at Keowee Elementary School back in 1986. I will always be grateful to him. He was always a great principal and he will certainly be missed. I will be praying for your family in the upcoming days.

Mac was always such a kind sole. Full of laughter and always with a smile and a joke. Loved his Aunt Fatty and her Nanna Puddin. Mac was a friend to the friendless in all his years at the McCormick Prison. Mac helped mold and shape some of the upstate youth through his gift of himself through his Education Career.But most of all I think Mac for being a blessing to my family and My Mother.Ann & Doodle & Casey & Family your in our thoughts and prayers. And will be there to help fill some of the quiet times.Let's celebrate Mac's life not his death. RIP my friend. Thanks for the memories.

I will always have fond memories of Mack. He taught me "Father Abraham" at church day camp, sang at my wedding, and introduced me to prison ministry, which allowed me to preach at McCormick Prison. My prayers are with the family.John
