This past week, Mason's dad went into his office. As he sat down, he discovered the picture shown above. It had been drawn on the dry erase board in his office. When Mason was healthy he would occasionally go to his dad's office and watch him work. At some point Mason had drawn this picture. I do not know what you see, but what I see is Mason with wings, flying while he looks over his dad's shoulders. At the time of this drawing, Mason was thought to be in remission. But in reality the cancer has relapsed and was moving fast. Within a short time, Mason would be gone. I wonder if Mason understood a whole lot more than any of us. On some level, did he know what was going on in his body? Did he know what the future held? Did he know his dad would find this picture only days after the funeral?
The very next night, Mason's dad saw a new message appear on his cell phone. The message indicated it was sent on January 29th, but it had just arrived on the phone. It was a very short and simple message. It was from Mason. "I love you Dad."
