  1. I was so sad to hear of Mason’s passing. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with him the last several months and reminiscing
    about family things going on “back in the day.” He was a delight to know and will be missed. My sincere condolences.

  2. Mason was my good friend and Co-Worker for his 15 years at Texas Department of Criminal Justice. I was his supervisor most of those years and we was like family, he called and checked on me and my family as o did him. I have truly lost a good friend and pray for his family. I’ve posted on Facebook and many people are proving how good a person he was,

  3. My condolences to the family. I have worked with Sandra, his sister, for many years. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  4. My thoughts are with Sandra and her family. I have worked with her for many years and care for her deeply. I pray for comfort in this time of grief and loss.
