  3. Bob was a first cousin with childhood memories going back to
    visits with our family in London Grove. My mother was Emily Mason
    Pierson. I have fond memories associating with Bob – no disagreement
    over playing with toys; always considerate, polite and
    kind. I extend heartfelt sympathy to Sally and to each family member.
    “Whether in life or in death we are the Lord’s.”

  4. Dearest Neighbor,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I read that Mr. Mason died after battling a long illness..
    I wanted to share the Bible’s hope for a paradise earth when God’s will will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
    When no one is sick.
    Isaiah 33:24 “And no resident will say: “I am sick.”
    When we can all live together forever like God intended it to be.
    Psalm 37:29 “The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.”
    And we can we reunited with our dead loved ones.
    Acts 24:15 “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous..”

    Again I am sincerely sorry for your loss

  6. Sally,
    Please accept my deepest sympathies on Bob’s passing.
    I always had the deepest respect for Bob and his whole family.
    Bob and his Dad were very close to my whole family over the years.
    I, of course, grew up with you and your family. Bob was always very positive about
    everything and everybody. I know he will be missed by all who knew him.
    May the beautiful memories help you through this difficult time.

  8. Bob was a boy-hood friend.
    He never complained, always positive. A class act.
    Managed the soccer team as well as other sports.
    I always thought well of him.
    Sad that he is gone.
    He will remain in my memories.
