"Mack was serious and absolutely professional, the kind of guy you would want taking care of your kid in a combat zone. He's one of those people you don't forget." --John Carlson, Des Moines Register colulmnist
Good Mourning, Widows.
Joy to you and me.
Today we welcome famous widow, Peggy Mack, wife of famous Marine Master Sgt. Kenneth N. Mack, to our joy-ous club. The club nobody wants to joy-n.
Master Sgt. Kenneth N. Mack was killed May 5, 2007 by a bomb blast in Anbar province. He was 42 years old and hailed from Fort Worth, Texas.
Peggy has their two children, daughter, Shquaydra, 18, and son, Nathaniel, 11, to see her through her grief.
To Peggy, Shquaydra, and Nathaniel, and all members of Marine Master Sgt. Kenneth N. Mack's family, sincere condolences and gratitude. We salute Master Sgt. Kenneth N. Mack's bravery, and we wish you mourning joy all the days of your lives.
