By Don Henderson
When the wreck occurred, Mac was a coach in
Richardson School district and Jr. High. There are
always ironic twists to life and one of them had to
do with the name Henderson. My Dad was a
Henderson and the people that were in the car that
hit Vivien and Mack some were....Henderson.
Mack's head coach when he was at Forney
was....Henderson.
This is the letter written to our
mother by the Forney coach's
wife after the wreck. (a
Henderson, but no kin to me that
I know) This letter expresses as
much  about Vivien as I could
possibly say, because this was
the essence of Vivien. I offer a
copy of this letter as an
expression of  the life of our
V.I.P.
Letter from Forney
Coach's Wife
Counter
My Mother received a touching letter from
Coach Henderson's (Mack's former coach
in Forney) wife after the wreck. Mother
was still recovering and was unable to read
or respond for some time. It really meant a
lot to all of us when we received the letter.
This letter perfect describes who Vivien
was and how important her husband's
work was to her. Thank you Mrs. Johnnie
Henderson for your kind remarks
Every time I read it I shed a tear.
