I met the Masters family when I was Judy’s Freshman roommate at college. My family lived far away, so I went home with Judy for holidays. Her family took me in like I was their own family and made me feel so welcome. I have so many fond memories of times spent with them in Lansing and up at the cabin. I pray that all the happy memories will comfort your family through this time of loss. Your father is such a big part of who you are and you carry that on as his legacy.

We were so blessed to have known Mr. Masters. He welcomed us into his home with a generous heart and gracious hospitality. He always made us feel welcome with a laugh, a kind word and wonderful stories. I was always moved by how much he loved being with his family-fishing, boating, relaxing..He made our family feel like we belonged and TJ, Moriah, Josh and I will all miss him greatly.

We met George and Jeanne at a convention in early 80s and became dear friends right away. Will miss his e-mails and his true friendship. Our prayers are with the family.
