  1. Mary Norris and family

    I am sending my prayers and love to the family, he lived a very full life, so now he needs to rest, he was always a good friend.

  2. The gift of time we cherish,The gift of life goes fast,The gift of love will never end as long as memories last

  3. Matt was one of the most pleasant and friendly men I've ever had the pleasure to know. He had a very strong handshake even into his last years from all the hard work those hands had seen. I remember being surprised to see a man of his age join us up on a widow's roof that was being reroofed as a church project back in the early 90's, when he was probably about 70 years of age. Quite a guy, who will be missed.

  4. Sorry for your loss.

  5. Family of Bill Brown

    We extend deepest sympathy to your family. Mr. Mason and our dad were long time friends. Dad was just asking about him and we were trying to locate you all. Know that your family are all in our thoughts and prayers.
