I miss you more and more each day. It doesn't seem to get any easier. The smallest things remind me of you. It still seems unreal, and tears are still shed with love from memories good and bad. I pray that one day I will find peace and some closure, but it just hasn't came yet. You were one of the hardest working, selfless individuals that I have and probably will ever meet. Prayers for others in our family who are still hurting as well.

Mahlon was always fun and witty. Elllie, your life with him is filled with lots of memories and joyful times. Hopefully, your heart can feel the loving, caring spirit of others and that it can somehow soften this sad goodbye. Wishing you well. Wishing you Peace

I couldn't have asked for a better grandpa and mentor. I will continue to strive to be like you- hardworking, compassionate, selfless, witty, humorous, and full of spirit. You mean so much to me and I am glad that I got to have you in my life to love and support me in my endeavors. Life will not be the same without you, but I am so glad you are no longer in pain. I'll cherish every memory that you and I shared. I really wish I could've made it home for one last hug and kiss from the best grandpa in the world. -Love, your "snicklefritz" that's full of "non-sensical tomfoolery."

I'm going to miss Mahlon's festive and energetic spirit, which tended to rub off on everyone that was around him. You will be greatly missed my friend, Moose
May 17, 2013
Mahlon - please say hello to my mom and dad! Also, give Jesus a hug for me! I didn't know you, but your son Mike talked about you and truly admired you. You were his hero. From what I gathered, Mike inherited his sense of humor from you.

May God comfort the whole family while you grieve and miss him until you meet him again.
