In Memory of Mason Allen

In Memory of Mason Allen
12/30/43 – 10/8/2010
So much of what we learn in life comes from our parents. Mason Allen was a loving father, husband and grandfather. He provided our family with stability and strength that we lean on today to help through each day without him. Two years have passed and not a day goes by that we do not grieve for the loss of such a great man. No matter where we are or what we are doing there is always someone missing.  Every memory we have includes him from a simple phone call to those hard times in life that he helped us through. We love you and miss you.

God’s Best
God saw you getting tired and your stay was not to be
He put his arms around you and whispered, “Come with me.”
With tear filled eyes we watched you fade
Although we loved you deeply we know you could not stay
A gold heart stopped beating and hardworking hands at rest
Our hearts we broken, but it was God’s way of saying
He only takes the best.

Your wife Thelma
Children Donna Cochran, Greta Murphy, Jeff Allen
Grandchildren Daulton and Macy Murphy
