Mr. McMahan will truly be missed in this community. He was a great neighbor and friend. I will miss talking with him at the horse paster gate. Our grandchildren love to pet the horses and he would always stop, if he were going down he read and talk for awhile. We will miss you. Kay and Danny Lollis
