Kristy I am so sorry for the pain that you are having to endure. Nothing on this earth is like that feeling and it will always be apart of you, but with time and help, cause he never leaves us to walk alone, you will come to exists in this world. If there was anything in this world that I could have done to spare you this pain I would have. You are a great mom and always remember yesterday because no one can take those remembers away from you. They are your forever. Look back on them to give you the strength that you will need in the days. weeks, months to come. I am so sorry it took me so long but I only read facebook whenever it is close to Casey Anniversary, birthday and death day. It still haunts me till this day that I didn't get to say I love you and goodbye but I know she knew that I love her, as well as Mason knew that you love him with all your heart and soul. Take care of yourself and I am only a phone call away night or day. I love you forever. My heart breaks for your loss.

I promised myself that I would write about Mason here because last night at the memorial service, I couldn't find my words. It's funny too because I know that Mason would find that hilarious-what, Ms. Hilger not finding her words?! He would be laughing hysterically at me right now because we shared a lot of words, in different forms, with one another. I felt bad about not speaking, but then his students and friends spoke and that is who we should here from because he impacted them in so many ways. It made me feel good to hear how much love they shared for him. I wanted to a moment, and remind his family, especially his tenacious and strong mother, of the incredible leadership force that he was while at Highland Tech. I spent nearly every day with Mason from the time he stepped into the school until he graduated. During his tenure there, I was his teacher, mentor, and administrator, but he was all of those things too. He led with his heart and his mind. The purpose of that school is to ground students in their own leadership skills because we all have them and Mason understood the impact that leadership could have on his peers and his learning community as a whole. Like many stated last night, he was the best of volunteers, but for Highland, he was way more than that. He modeled leadership skills, and learned how to be a better leader for himself and others. Mason would come to us with problems that he saw students having and he would want to work towards solutions. Like Kat mentioned, he was involved in so many leadership activities, but everyone saw him as a leader who represented the student voice, and who really cared about making that learning community better. Highland would not have been the same without him, and the work he collaborated on with others. Kids don't turn out that way by accident. Mason was a beautiful person and I will always be proud to have known and worked with him. Mason, you are free now, fly high, and always search for the high ground.
