CORDER-REESE -- Mason Corder-Reese January 17, 2003 to May 24, 2004 When you died The world did not stop People did not pause To honor To reflect To catch a painful breath Birds not break their song The earth did not skip a spin Only we who loved you Felt it end for Uncounted beats There is not a minute that goes by that you are not in all of our hearts and our thoughts. Mason, we love and miss you dearly. Your loving friends and family
