    We are so sorry for the loss of Mason. It is hard enough to lose a family member but to lose one so young is an even greater loss and one hard to accept. His smiling face and loving heart will be greatly missed. We send our love and prayers to you his family. Although we are unable to be there in person to celebrate his life, we will be there in spirit. May God give you comfort and strength in the days to come. All our love.

    From the families of Shirley Wilson and Rita Cave

    Nothing I can say will ever ease the heart ache and emptiness your family is feeling at this very sad time. The only thing we know is Mason is in a better place, God gave us our children on a timed basis and He can call them home at any time. It is hard to understand how God would need Mason more than his family, I am sure God choose Mason because he was so special. One day you will be reunited with Mason and nothing will ever separate you again…May God comfort you as only He can.☝️💔

    Vera Simmons was my Aunt, Skipper (Gilbert) Simmons my cousin, Michael my second cousin and Mason my third cousin. I never got to meet Mason but I have seen him grow up in pictures over the years. Living so far away from your family is never right. Not being able to watch these boys and girls mature is a shame. You are my blood and I love you all dearly. My prayers are with you,always.

    I remember Mason being about 7 years old at the campground and he had a crush on my baby sister. I used to tease them and joke with them. Mason was such a little cutie and always would brighten the room when he came in. He was one of the sweetest, most respectful, handsome, and just all around one of the best kids I’ve ever met. Michelle & Mike raised their children right that’s for sure. Hearing this news is heart breaking. Mike, Michelle & Lil Mike there are not words to say how sorry I am. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers! Fly high sweet Mason!

    When death occurs in a family, it leaves behind an emptiness. However, Mason has left behind loving memories that will live in our hearts forever. We will always remember him as a truly unique, loving, and caring young man. He was a gift to all of us. He had such a positive and loving look on life that words can not describe who Mason was and so words also can not describe the loss we are all feeling now. We love you Mason and we miss you dearly. Until we meet again cuz.
