    Beth and Mike, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss I can’t imagine losing a child. Mason was a sweet nephew always cherish those memories you had with mason and remember those last words he said to you, “I love you” Mason was taken to soon from us but god had plans for him.

    I remember during my visit to the states, during that first week i met him. He played a guitar and i was amazed, then we talked a lot about my Homeland and he also told me about the US. I'll always remember that exact moment I'll always remember you Mason I'm sure you are now at ease in Paradise. See you on the other side

    I so remembered Mason at about 5 yrs old walking with his dad up & down my street. He hated when my cat got hurt by a dog they had & if out he would asked how she was doing. It made me so sad when Paster Glenn had him on prayer chain & when they had to pull him off. Praying for all of you. Carolyn
