Such is the case with Grandma. We miss her dearly, but we are all better for having known her. "As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?" Psalms 42:1,2 (NIV).

MEMORIAL: Memorial Service for Kenneth Mason Saturday Jan, 23 2010. Scott Baptist Church, Hinton, Oklahoma.
Ken was born in Quinton, OK to Lois and Francis Mason. Pat, his wife of 51 years, described him as, "A good husband, father, brother and provider. He was a very hard worker and never passed up any woman in distress." His mother wrote in a poem that he was "A lovely little guy with golden yellow curls, a real Don Cupid. He loved all the little girls." He was all this, and so very much more, the last of his kind. We are comforted in knowing that Ken trusted the Lord as his Savior at an early age, and walked with Him until his death. Now Ken is with Jesus in a perfect body.

Chester Gleandon Mason

OBITUARY: Service for Chester Mason, 90, of Broken Arrow, will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Calvary Baptist Church. John Fream will Officiate under the direction of Christian-Gavlik Funeral Home. Burial will be at Park Grove Cemetery. He died Thursday, Sept. 14, 2006, at Tulsa. Mason was born Dec. 16, 1915, To William and Leavy Mason. They Preceded him in death. He was a retired Assembler for Douglas Aircraft. He Married Reba Mason in December 1940. She preceded him in death in Oct 2005. Mason was also preceded in death by a grandson, a brother and sister. Mason was a deacon at Calvary Baptist Church, where he was a charter member. He is survived by Sons James Mason of East Grand Forks, Minn. And Bill Mason and wife Donna of Broken Arrow; a daughter Pat Melson and Husband Richard of Broken Arrow; five grand-children and 11 great grandchildren.

Chester Mason was a quiet, gentle, humble man. He possessed the qualities of commitment, loyalty, steadfastness, and honesty. Chester demonstrated commitment by being married to one woman for nearly 65 years. He met the love of his life, Reba, when he was 12, and she was 4. He would hold her hands and walk with her feet on top of his. Now, they are walking hand in hand on streets of gold.
Chester was loyal to his church. He was one of the original members of Calvary Baptist Church and served the same congregation for 42 years as a deacon, a greeter, and a friend to all. During a lot of this time, he kept the altars supplied with tissues, something that he didn't reveal to even his wife.
Chester did nothing in a hurry. Once, when he was working on an assembly line, the foreman kept coming to see if he was finished with a job. Chester told the man, "If you don't like this speed, I know you won't like the other one." He would study a situation from all angles before making a move. He planned and built a room onto his house, totaiiy unaware that you needed a building permit. Chester devised a frame to hoist two 4 x 12 sheets of drywall for the ceiling. He installed them by himself. They're still in place.
Chester was a man of few words. Proverbs 17:27 says, "He that hath knowledge spareth his words." Proverbs 10:31 reads, "The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom." That was Chester; when he did speak, it was something worth heeding. He didn't waste words; his comments were to the point, and often humorous. He would often watch his grandchildren playing but, if they got too rowdy for him, he could stop the action with just one comment. No anger, no yelling, just a few simple words from a gentle grandpa.
When Chester laughed, his eyes would twinkle, his face would light up, and his belly would shake, just like his mother did when she laughed. The way he would say, "I know it," in a conversation, caused you to believe that he was confident of what he knew. Today, we all are confident that we know where Chester Mason is.
