Mr. Mason made such a positive impact on so many lives at Elder, including my own. He was such a great advocate and I still remember the note he wrote me on my graduation in 2000. Condolences to Mr. Mason's family and cheers to a wife well-lived.

Tom and I volunteered together at public radio WMKV and did a show on Wednesdays. I always looked forward to the time we had to spend together each week.
