Gabriel William Mason

To my soulmate, to our son, to a father, brother, uncle, friend, and lover: We will forever miss you. We will forever love you. We will forever cherish you. They say the best are taken young because they are just too beautiful for this world, and you my love were blinding. The soul was too pure, too sweet and too strong. We will live on for you. The impact you made was so strong it will last forever. I will feel you in the air, I will feel you in the warmth of the sun. I will feel you in the music my forever soulmate. God has you in his arms, in forever peace, baseball in the field with our son, beatbox in the sky. My, our forever love. Fly high, strong and loud. Love, Halley
