Prayers and Thoughts - Leakey

Postby curious » Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:53 am

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to the SW Tx fliers in Leakey.

Please let folks know what can be done to support and help out.

When time permits in the future, a report so others can learn.

God bless

Thanks for starting the polite topic.

Terry Mason was very opposed to running to the internet forums, with mostly speculation, when tragedy strikes us in the HG community.

His 65yrs of life and very very basic lifestyle was all about hang gliding.

It was off the roof at 6yr old, with a bedsheet and broomsticks.

Efforts to locate any remaining family in Oklahoma have been unsuccessful thus far.

Terry worshiped with the Methodist congergation and sang in the choir.

Anyone who sees fit might send a donation in Terry's name.

Thanks again.

The sherriff's office was unsuccessful, but Effie, my wife, persisted. We have contacted Terry's remaining family.
I expect his services will be Thursday, but not sure yet.

2012-06-16 Terry Mason in platform launching lockout enters Next Thermal. In his text is found his note: "the incomparable thrill of free flight. I'm reminded of Johnathan Livingston Seagull"
