    Dear Randy & Sandy,
    I am so sorry for your loss.
    Byron was 2 years older than me and as a young man, I really looked up to him. In our late teens cruising town, going to parties and shooting pool were a teenagers favorite pass-time. Byron and I ran into each other a few times in town. Our fathers being friends, we had met briefly before but having the same interests we “hung out” several times over the summer of my junior year. Byron, being a couple of years older, was influential to me. Even as a young man he was wise and had integrity, nothing more can be asked of a man. We did not see each other much after that summer but I know he was a wonderful man with a positive affect on those he came in contact with as he was to me.
    My prayers are with you as you.

    Dear Mr. Mason,

    Thank you for calling me about Byron. I am sorry that I can’t express my condolence in person.
    I have planned to see him in October when I visit Statesville. I spoke to him about a week ago, as always in high spirit, appreciative of his parents and his boxer. Thou I haven’t met him, he always makes me feel like we’ve known for a long time.
    I am very touched and blessed to be a part of his life. He will be kept in my thoughts and prayers. Please take care and send my regards to Mrs. Mason. Hope to see you in October.
