Evelyn and Raymond Mason were gracious and loving Christians. They had deep Christian convictions and served the Lord Jesus all of their lives. I loved them dearly and deeply as a personal friend.

She was one of the sweetest ladies. She taught me Sunday School when I was little girl at Wells Station Baptist Church. Her and Mr. Raymond were such faithful Christians that loved the Lord.
