Mason Ryan Wight
December 15, 2001 – June 5, 2013
Mason Ryan Wight was born into this world in Dallas, Texas on December 15th, 2001, to his blessed parents, Doug and Tracy Wight. Mason was Doug and Tracy's first child together and the family resided in Rockwall, Texas. Mason lived with his parents, as well as with his two sisters, Erin Gallagher and Terra Wight and a brother, Ryan Gallagher. His oldest brother, Drew Wight, had already left home for college. Although born healthy, Mason was soon diagnosed with many allergies and was also an asthmatic child. Through his early years his allergies were held in check through natural homeopathic care but his asthma required regular medications and treatments. Mason was always a very happy and engaging young boy, outgoing, polite and pleasant in every way. He was loving, caring and sensitive to all whom knew him. He loved sports of all kinds both as a participant and as a fan, but his clear favorites were football and baseball, which he played up until the end of his very short life on this earth. Mason performed well in school as well as on the playing field and was competitive with both. He always displayed outstanding sportsmanship, leadership and tirelessly worked on improving his skills. As he grew into a young man, Mason dreamed of playing professional baseball and becoming a US Navy Seal. Mason and his family were blessed to have experienced many of the great joys of life, having travelled all over the United States and internationally. From visiting his sister Terra in Hawaii to traveling in Europe with his parents and grandparents, Mason witnessed many things in life that most children only get to read about. Where ever his parents travel plans took him, Mason loved seeing new places and meeting new people. Mason's father being a geologist, introduced Mason to the natural beauty of this earth and encouraged him to love the outdoors and science. Mason became an avid rock and mineral collector and at times would boldly say he was already a geologist. Mason enjoyed hiking, swimming, attending sporting events, going to museums, skiing, dirt biking, archery, and was preparing for his first hunting season this coming fall. Mason was currently playing baseball with the DC Dolphins in Castle Rock having moved to Colorado just in December of 2012. Mason will be remembered as a great and loving young man with a permanent smile on his face. A smile that could charm and uplift all he came in contact with. He was an encourager, a motivator and always willing to help anyone in need. He was a great older brother to his younger brother Carson, always protective, loving and they were certainly best friends. As a son, he was the sunshine in his parents' day from the first minute of his life. God's gift to this world, Mason was baptized in February and lived his life as well as any angel could here on Earth. The love and joy he gave to his parents made them blessed beyond all dreams. He was as perfect a son as any child could be. No child could be loved more! Mason's gift of life will be remembered and cherished by all whom he knew and loved. His family and friends will certainly be better off having known him and though gone now, he will never be forgotten. A piece of Mason will live in us all until the day we reunite with him in God's heavenly kingdom.

Mason, our family thinks of you so very often. I see how much Mathias how grown and I often wonder how your earthly body would look today. He is almost 6 ft tall and has his learners permit. Whew, I would be scared imaging you two on the road together... Hahahaha...He always talks about moving back to Colorado, that is his dream location to live. A place where he had his happiest memories and met his soul brother that he will always be connected to. You are such a huge part of his life still today. I am sure you will always be. I often wonder where we would be if you were here with us today (that is in flesh because without a doubt you are always with us in spirit), none the less we are extremely blessed to have you in our lives. I bet without a doubt you would have beat that depth perception on the baseball field. I laugh when I type this because it made you so stanking mad. Mason, we love you and miss you so much....Our Salami and cheese snacks have not been the same since you left, thank the Good Lord above for all the wonderful gifts we continue to live through our memories. We love you sweetie, God bless your family as they go through this earthly pain of missing you.
Christie, Pete, Jaden Kiriazes

A tearful day of wonderful and sad memories. Mason's fourth angel anniversary has come and I'm once again reminded and more appreciative of all his amazing qualities. Special traits that are rare to find in any person much less a young boy. The world is much different place today without your presence and your spirit. How I wish you were here but also realize how blessed you are to be in God's presence.
I hope you know just how much I love you and miss you. You are never far from my heart and mind. I trust you will continue to be there for Carson in his times of need, worries or fears to help guide him to a place of peace and love.
May Christ hold you close daily as my arms are not long enough to reach you now and share with you daily just how proud I am to be your father.
I miss you son and will love you for all eternity!

Your life was taken from you at such a young age, I feel like you missed out on so much. Carson loves you so much and Max still loves trying to lay on Carsons bed. You mean the world to me!! I love ❤ you so much!!

Happy Birthday Mason Ryan!!!! Your 15th! How we all wish you were celebrating with us but I'm sure Birthdays in Heaven are special too. I know you are surrounded by all who love you and as you know you are loved and missed beyond description here.
I wonder how much taller than me you'd be now, I wonder what all interests you would have now, I wonder about who you would be catching your eye, I wonder what fun and fantastic things you, Carson and I would be doing now. I can not hardly wait until we are together again where I can hear your voice, see your smile and feel the warmth of your hugs.
I remember Carson telling me a couple days after you passed as he watched me crying, "Dad, God must have had something very special for Mason to do!" And I totally agree! You are a very special young man and angel now and I know you are helping others, starting with your brother. He needs your angelic hugs and directions!
I love you Mason, always have and always will, forever!
December 15, 2016

Peace and blessings to you today Mason as I have a special day of remembrance of you on this your third Angel Anniversary. Time has passed so quickly and so slowly as each day I remember what was and how terribly I miss you. Many things have changed in my life but my love for you is just as real and strong as it ever was and this will never change. I think of you with great happiness, joy and pride for you were surely a very special creation of God's great love and I am so thankful to have been a part of your life. Mason I love you as much as is humanly possible and pray so much for your eternal joy and happiness. I ask each day for God to hug you and share my love with you and I so look forward to our future time together as I await our glorious and heavenly reunion.
I so greatly miss your laughter, smiles and hugs! You will always be my best buddy. Please keep Carson in your prayers and close to you as he needs to feel your love and presence though his fragile life.
I love you Mason!!!!
February 24, 2016
Today is a special day for me. Some family and friends advise me it is not healthy for me to count Mason's days since his passing but each one has been special to me. Just as each day that I have my other three children with me are. A 1000 days sound like such a long time but it seems like an instant for me and I know for my God.
Mason, it only seems like yesterday I heard your laugh and saw your smile and I trust that those angels surrounding you are also enjoying them right at this instant. I miss you greatly but trust that in a twinkling of an eye I will once again be forever with you.
I love you Buddy! You and my memories are with me each and every day and will always be blessed by our time together.
January 7, 2016
Mason your always on my mind, I will always hold you close in my heart. Carson and I talk about you all the time and we always keep your memory alive..... You mean the world to us...<3 We love you so much!!! Mom, Carson and Max
December 16, 2015
Mason, You would be 14 today son, happy birthday my dearest child. How I miss the sound of your laughter, the warmth of your hug, the joy in your eyes. I pray that God is using you in a mighty way to help fulfill his will. The world is emptier without your presence but perhaps it is a better place with your angelic presence helping others in need. My hope is our eternal reunion. Watch over your brother as you did here on earth, as he still needs your love and wisdom. I love you Mason. My joy and happiness lie in the Lord's plan for you, now and forevermore. Happy Birthday to my young man!!

I love you Mason, we miss you everyday!!

Two years ago today Mason you became one of God's precious angels. I miss you so incredibly every single day, I'm so empty without you here beside me. As your brother Carson told me just after you left, Dad..... God must have had something really important for Mason to do. Yes Carson, you must be right. I know Mason you are blessing those whom need it and you are still such a blessing in my life. I love you every waking moment and for all eternity.

Life is so sad without you in our lives. We love you so much and I am so sorry for you missing your future here on this earth. I pray you are surrounded now in love and happiness as we long for the day to be with you once more.

As the school year draws to an end at South Ridge Elementary, Mason's tree is blooming. He is not forgotten.
June 1, 2014
I know for sure a day has not gone by with out the thoughts of Mason on my mind.
I'm grateful everyday for our friendship that has flourished with the Wight family.
The year that had passed has not been an easy one nor will the years to come.
We truly are blessed to know Doug, Tracy & Carson.
We are always here for you.
Thank you for letting us be

Seems like a brief moment ago, but a year has passed today that we lost our precious Mason. Mason our hearts are
so empty without you, we
miss you more than words could possibly express. I pray daily for you and hold on to God's promise that we will be together again soon.
We love you son!!!

Mason was a wonderful kid and a good friend. He will always have a smile in his face and never gave up on anything. He will never be forgotten by hearts of South Ridge Elementary. And as my friends say. The dead are alive for us
September 28, 2013
Dakota is right. Mason will always have a spot in our hearts at South Ridge Elementary. As I teach Spanish in the 6th grade classes this year, Mason is not there but he will never be forgotten. He is with his Savior now but always in our hearts.
September 25, 2013
Mason Wight is a awesome person. I was in his class Ms.Gilchirst 5th grade class it was a sad day it was almost the end of the year when he died. Mason Wight will always have a spot in my heart and the whole South Ridge Elementary school.

What a beautiful writing of your love for Mason. What a wonderful young man Mason was growing into. So many wonderful memories to last you forever. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that God that can feel the void with all those wonderful memories that you wrote about. Love to you all.
June 27, 2013
Mason you are one of the sweetest and most caring little boys I've ever known.
Your greatest joy in life was sharing your warmth, love and good humor with your friends and family.
I will always remember how you used to say "It's going to be a Beautiful Day Today", no matter what the weather.
You always had that big smile on your face.
You will always be on my mind and in all of our hearts.
We Miss you and Love you Always..
Jaden, Pete and I are sending you Hugs..

My prayers are with your family that God will comfort you and lead you to the time that you can think of Mason with a smile. God has chosen to take him while he was so very young. We must trust in God and believe He knows best. Know that Mason is warm, safe, and happy in His hands. He is waiting to see all of his family and friends when God's plans bring them home to heaven. Take care of yourselves and believe that God had a plan for Mason and though it is so hard for us that are left behind, Mason is where God wants him to be.
June 26, 2013
Tracy, Doug, Carson, Erin and Ryan,
There are no words that we can offer to make everything okay, but know that we are praying for you all. Mason left this earth way too early, and has certainly left a void in the family, but know that he is smiling down on all of you from above. You will always have the memories of all the good times you had together during his short time on earth. He was always smiling everytime we saw him.
Wishing you all peace as you remember the good times and begin to heal.
We love you all,
Joe and Donna Fiammi, Todd and Debbie Evans, Mark and Dawn Hudgins.

Tracy, Doug and Family
In times like these, words fail. Words cannot describe the sorrow, despair and emptiness within the void created by Mason's absence. But with Mason, we know to be absent from us is to be present with the Lord.
Mason's time was short but we are thankful for the time we shared at family gatherings and the memories created that will last a lifetime. Wrestling with Mason on the love seat in mom's living room , rolling in the leaves in the backyard, Mason's beautiful brown eyes and his boyish grin, these are the things we will remember about Mason.
I pray the Holy Spirit will strengthen and comfort your family and fill your lives with true peace that only He can provide. We serve a Risen Savior and with Jesus Christ we can face each day assured that one day we will all be together again to spend eternity in God's perfect heaven.
May God Bless your family, we love you All.

Doug, Tracy, Carson, Ryan, Erin and Family,
Mason was my precious grandson whom I watched grow from a tiny baby to
a kind, sweet & intelligent young man, he was way beyond his 11 years on earth.
I loved him deeply & dearly. He was my little angel right here on earth, with those big cheerful brown eye's and that beautiful smile, they will always be etched in my heart forever.
My mind is overflowing with the precious memories of my Mason that have a very special place in my soul.
Although my Mason has departed this earth he will always be in my prayers, thoughts and memories forever.
I miss my baby boy so very much. There are truly no words to describe the pain I feel!
I pray to our Heavenly Father for comfort & guidance for all my family members that the Lord continue to turn his face toward my family and to give us peace and heal our souls from the loss of our precious Mason.
June 20, 2013
Tracy, Doug, Carson, Ryan and Erin, Our hearts are filled with saddness. Bill and I are so very sorry that Mason left this earth way too soon. He was a special child, with those big happy brown eyes and infectious smile. We always looked forward to your visits and spending time with the boys. We pray for God's comfort and peace for you all. Mason will always be part of our family through our precious memories.

Mason was an amazing brother, I can't believe I'm never going to get see him grow up. I want him back.
June 9, 2013
Mason was an awesome teammate and friend too. He always encouraged all of us, no matter what. He wanted us to feel good about ourselves. He was an awesome player. Although, he knows when he messes-up, he would talked to himself about it and then move on. He never seemed to let anything get him down. He was an awesome player. While we tried to do our best for him, we didn't quite make it in the play-offs. There is no question, we needed him. I can hear him say, it's alright - next year, next year guys. I will always remember him and his "we can do it" personality. He was really awesome. Brandon Williams - Dolphins Black
