My deepest condolences to the Kendall family. I met Mason at Darden Elementary School. He was always so outgoing and fun. I will always remember Mason with a mohawk on haircut, a joke and a smile on his face. I will never forget the friendship we shared at a young age and the joy he brought to everyone. My prayers go out to your family— I wish you healing and peace. God bless. -Allison

Dear Brian, Dawn & Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. There are so many things that happen in life that we won't be able to comprehend until we are all together in heaven. You all will be in my prayers and I have asked my Paul to help welcome Mason to heaven and to share stories of Brian's freshman year of baseball at Riley.

While we are taught not to question God's plans in life, this defies explanation. It is my hope that the love, prayers and support you receive from the community help ease your burden in part. God bless you and peace.
