Marguerite was such a warm and loving person to all who knew her and was fondly called Mama Marguerite by many. I had the pleasure of working with Marguerite for about 7 years at Hampton Chevrolet. She will be missed.

  Dear Mason Family - thank you for making me a part of "yours" for all these years. I am blessed to have had "MOM" in my life. She mentored me through many things in Life and at times I didn't even realize it - now I do. Mrs. Mason - YOU - leave a Beautiful Legacy. See you "somewhere over the Rainbow." I bet your Wings look Beautiful on you :)

Love & Prayers to my Mason Family...

No. 45 - I Know That My Redeemer Liveth

- G. F. Handel
 

I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
And though worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God.

(Job 19:25-26)


For now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of them that sleep.

(I Corinthians 15:20)
