She concluded the post by stating that she could not speak for who he was going to be today, but one thing she was excited about was that Mac would have been delighted with the way he was remembered and honored.

To honor her father, McCullough shared a picture of him and a video clip of a stand-up comedian, Nancy J Lee Woods doing an imitation of Mac to an audience. The photo she shared was a poster image of Mac holding a cigar.
