A giant has fallen. A man who was loved and admired by all who knew him. 💔

The MacClellan's were houseparents when my parents first came to work at the ranch and their kids, though a bit older than me, were very sweet boys. They also stood up at my parents wedding, so needless to say, it was a long standing friendship.
Later, I remember them from living just down the road from us, when Dad became the director at the ranch.

As I have learned, there is nothing you can say that truly expresses the numerous ways Mr. MacClellan touched lives or even begin to describe the sort of man who would devote his life to helping others. The grief simply speaks for itself, and the knowledge that the world has lost a precious and much needed light.

Sending all my love to his family and those many others who loved him.
