    Rest in Paradise Malcolm! You will truly be missed, you didn’t deserve what happened to you. You were a very respectful young woman with a heart of gold. We definitely acted a fool at McDonalds, so much fun and laughter! I love you and I’m going to miss seeing that beautiful smile but I’m going to miss hearing you call me “momma!” Rest easy baby boy ❤️❤️❤️

    • Marcus and Katrina Basey

      Sending our sincerest condolences and love to the entire Mason family. Upon moving to Mansfield and attending Shiloh, my son Marcus formed a family bond with Malcolm and the Mason household. Everyone treated him with love and kindness and I am truly grateful. After Marcus passing 9 years ago Malcolm continued to reach out to us every year on his birthday and death anniversary to make sure we knew how much Marcus was loved because that’s what kind of young man he is..loving, humble, and kind. Malcolm you will truly be missed by the Basey’s. I am sure Marcus and Tyree will be at heavens gate’s with smiles on their faces “dapping” you in, and please give them a tight hug from me. I will forever miss you three! Betty and Artie, Marcus and I will continue to keep you both in our prayers. May God grant you peace that surpasses all understanding.
