With Heavy Hearts…

It is with very heavy hearts that we share some extremely sad news. MNA’s very own, Tim McMullen – our photographer and consistent volunteer – passed away this weekend. We will miss his smile, sense of humor, and willingness to always lend a hand. The MNA board meetings won’t be the same without his wit and jokes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.

A Memorial Mass is scheduled for 11 am CST next Thursday, June 15 at Emmaus Catholic Parish in Lakeway, TX. Reception details will be posted as soon as possible. There will be a carpool set up if anyone would like to join please pm or email

Info on Memorial Mass for Tim McMullen:
