    My thoughts and condolences to the Mason family on the loss of Larry. Though I only got to work with him briefly, I remember his mild personality and his friendly smile. Due to a previous commitment, I will be unable to attend the funeral Friday, but I will have the Masons in my thoughts and prayers. May God grant you peace and comfort for the next days of adjustment.
