My dearest Mason Family,
My prayers and deepest condolence go out to the family of David Michael Mason. I work with Anne. She is a beautiful person, with a beautiful heart. She spoke highly of her father often. I can't help but imagine that she received that beautiful gift from him-a caring spirit. I send hugs and love. I leave you with Revelation 21:3, 4: "With that, I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Rest Mr. Mason. We'll miss you. But we shall see you in the promised paradise that Jesus spoke of, that "resurretion of the rightous" in John 5:28, 29.
