Our sincere sympathy goes out to all the Mason Family. You are in our prayers.
Oh the memories and laughter we shared with Uncle Curt. From my younger days of him carrying me upside down & attempting to put my pony tail in the pile of horse poop. His joking about Jeff’s long hair & blue tinted glasses. More than anything I will miss his early arrival to the Mason reunion to lend a hand in set up. I always dubbed him as the “ornery” uncle and will greatly miss his laugh. Condolences to all of you.
Praying for your family at this time.
Dear Bert & family.
You have my sincerest condolences at the loss of Curt. I have many fond memories of times spent at your place with your kids and the other neighborhood kids while growing up in “good times!”
You and Curt where, like so many of the other adults around us, like extended parents. You looked after us as though we were your own.
I’ll never forget my childhood in that part of town nor will I forget Curt and other “fathers” that looked after us and protected us.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
