I met Ada Mason over a weekend at our mutal friend Willie Highsmith's 50th birthday celebration. I remember her bright smile and joy for life. I only knew her for a brief moment but somehow I know meeting Ada made my life better. We all miss you. When Willie speaks of you I know he misses you very much. I can see the sadness in his eyes and hear it in his voice.

Shannon and others, through this hard time I wish I was there to embrace you. Your mother is an angel in heaven looking over all of us, and we all love her. This nation has come together in many ways, but prayer is our No. 1 strength throughout this tragedy. There are no words that can express my feelings on the recent events. But hopefully with these words, support, lots of love and prayer we can all make it together. May God bless not only you and your family, but the world.
Latasha Davis, friend of daughter
I would just like to say to the Mason family you are all in my prayers and have my deepest sympathy in your time of sorrow. I knew Mrs. Mason through church, and she lived in the same neighborhood I grew up in. She was truly a beautiful person who will be missed. Remember to hold on to God's unchanging hand during this rough time.
