Mastic replacement - How important is it to remove ALL old mastic?

Hello, I am currently replacing all of our old pool mastic. I got the majority of the old stuff out but there is still a bit stuck to the side of the flagstone decking which is quite difficult to remove (see photo). Is it ok to leave or should I use a grinder or some other tool to try and remove it all completely? Thank you!
