Sorry for your lost. What a blessing to have your parents this long in your lives. They are fine people and remember so well the long and caring they showed to all people. They were definitely a mainstay in Kenbridge Christian Church. Fond memories and of all you kids. Enjoyed going to church with you all and the friendships. Prayers. Love in Christ Darlene Clem Nash

Dear Elsie and family, So sorry to hear of Mason's passing. Have missed running into you at the Post Office or grocery store since you moved, but I know the move nearer the children was the best thing for you both. Pray God gives you comfort during this time. God Bless each of you. Our love.

I know that it hard that Mason has passed but realize that he is now where he always wished to be. Finally walking with Jesus and wishing him happy birthday very soon.  Mason was once my Sunday school teacher and also taught me lot about electronics when I was just a kid. Told me to keep one hand in your pocket when working around high voltages so you won't get electrocuted. I will always cherish that and know that he was the definition of a real Christian!  What a very great person that I had the pleasure of knowing!
